About Lagos Branch

The Lagos State Branch was established in the late nineties owing to the fact that the Institute did not feel the need to have a branch in Lagos as at the time due to the Headquarters being in Lagos, but this position changed as needs of the Institute increased and members in Lagos desired to have their own peculiarities and ways of doing things. The flagship Branch as it is regarded, has since then been in the forefront of the growth and development of our dear Institute.
The Branch started off with four (4) Personnel Practitioners Consultative Associations (PPCAs) now known as Chapters at the inception, and has grown to eleven (11) Chapters spread across the entire State with huge potentials for developing not just the Branch but the Institute as well. See the list of Chapters and their details HERE.

The branch presently has over three thousand (3,000) members from both the public and the private sector that cuts across all the Chapters, the Branch has enjoyed, and continues to enjoy quality, committed, passionate and strong leadership since its inception. The flagship event of the Branch, her annual conference which started in the year 2002 under the leadership of Mrs Love Ezema, FCIPM, the then Chairperson of the branch, witnessed her 20th edition this year 2023. The Branch regularly organizes training programmes that are used to ganner points for Human Resource Practitioners licence renewals (HRPL) and for upgrades aside the knowledge acquisition and networking opportunities participants gets from them.

We also carry out institutional visits, advocacy programmes like the Catch Them Younger and Catch Them Younger activities geared towards encouraging undergraduates/Corpers and secondary school students to encourage them to chose Human Resource as a profession/career to get into.

The branch has been blessed with very resourceful leaders from her inception. See the past Chairmen HERE
