The Association of Independent Insolvency Practitioners (AIIP) is on a recruitment drive.
Founded in 2016 the not-for-profit currently has more than 160 members and is looking to open its collective network to a larger proportion of the only IPs it accepts as members- registered liquidators and trustees in bankruptcy.
According to AIP President Stephen Hathway of Helm Advisory membership offers genuine benefits.
“It’s a practitioners’ association for practitioners by practitioners,” Hathway says.
Significantly, with a membership comprising only registered and regulated corporate and personal insolvency specialists, AIIP working groups maintain a laser focus on the issues of most import to RLs and trustees.
That also means there is no divergence of interests from a non-registered membership which Hathway says means “Sharing the same problems and building a collective network to group solve the key issues facing IPs.”
“We are active in advocacy and only focus on matters that have a real impact on the IP,” he said.
Hathway said the AIIP had already established chapters in Brisbane, Sydney , Parramatta and Melbourne and was looking to set up in Adelaide.
