Joint Professions Group (JPG) was formed by the Southern Society of Chartered Accountants, part of the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales), and represents some 20 professional bodies whose members are based in the South of England including West Sussex, Surrey, Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
The primary aim of JPG is to connect professionals by providing opportunities for joint business and social events, training and professional networking.
JPG is not a membership body (ie there are no membership fees) - it is simply a group of professionals seeking to provide a framework for dynamic business networking. We organise two main events a year and seek to provide an experience to which members of the public would not ordinarily have access; previous successful events have included Southampton Port, the RNLI, the Spinnaker Tower, INTECH, NOCS and, most recently, BAE Systems' ship building facilities in Portsmouth and the Beaulieu Motor Museum in Hampshire. The next one will be in October 2011 at the Police training centre, Hamble.
In addition, we promote other Institutes’ events and courses that may be relevant and useful to members, thus enabling them to benefit from the professional and technical skills training offered by these other bodies.
In addition to the Institutes whose logos appear here, other professional bodies include CIPFA, CIPR, The Law Society-Dorset, CIMI, RIBA, and STEP.

JPG Spring Event - Oil Spill Response Limited, Southamtpon
JPG hosted another great spring event at the Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) in Southampton on 14 May 2013. Over 20 people attended from various bodies including ICAEW, ACCA, CISI, the Law Society and more.
After light refreshments, the group took to a tour of the Base for the Oil Spill Response which covers the globe. Tony Prest from the OSRL then gave a fascinating presentation to the types of work and disasters the OSRL have had to respond to.
Tim Fullerlove from Wilson Solicitors commented saying: "Thank you for an excellent evening at the Oil Spill Response event. The tour around the facility was a great opportunity to see how such an important organisation works, and there was plenty of time before and afterwards to meet other professionals and make new contacts"
