Volunteer Vacancies in London
A number of volunteer vacancies exist. Any member of IMechE from Affiliates to Fellows may volunteer to help regional activities . Any level of support is welcomed from one hour a week to as much time as you can spare.
Most Corporate or Fellow Members tend to get involved in either the Regional or Area Committee activities. If you are a Young Member (an Affiliate, Associate or Corporate Member less than 10 years accredited) then it's best to get involved in the Young Members Panel.
