Anyone with an interest in information law and rights can join NADPO. No qualification is required, although a familiarity with the subject is recommended due to the degree of technical content in our events and resources.

By joining NADPO, you will become part of an active community of information professionals.

Your membership will give you access to:

  • Quarterly 1-day conferences with expert speakers on information rights and law topics
  • News, updates and expert opinion on information rights and law
  • Presentations from past conferences
  • Opportunities to attend events held by associated organisations

Simply visit the Join Us page to register as a NADPO member. There is an annual membership fee of £130 which includes attendance at all NADPO events.

We offer both Individual and Corporate memberships. Corporate membership is intended for organisations that want access to the benefits of NADPO membership without designating a particular individual as a member, allowing any employee to attend NADPO events.

At this time, we cannot offer CPD credits for NADPO events due to the administrative burden required. However, if you would like a certificate of attendance, we can provide this for you on request.

To maintain our status as an independent organisation, NADPO does not recommend or promote any particular training course or provider. However, our network of information professionals includes trainers and course providers; who may be able to assist.

There are a variety of approaches to data protection training available; including LLM from accredited Universities, the ISEB certification courses offered by various providers, and various bespoke courses offered by consultancy organisations.

One key requirement for a Data Protection Officer (as stated in Article 37 GDPR) is that the individual appointed has appropriate skills expertise in data protection law. We consider that the high quality of speakers and diversity of topics at our events is an important aspect of this professional learning.
