Welcome to the Farnborough and Guildford Area

The Farnborough & Guildford Area committee welcome you & look forward to meeting you.

As always, your committee has been working hard to ensure we have an interesting and varied programme of events.  We plan lectures well ahead and publish the programme at least 6 months in advance.
If you have an email address on your membership profile which is within the IMechE website you should receive the ThamesWey programme card, in pdf format, a monthly digests of events and advisory emails.

As we are planning events so far in advance, changes are sometimes unavoidable. Therefore, we strongly advise all our members to keep a keen eye on the 'events' page, to make sure they have the most up-to-date details for all our events.

Reaching our Members

In an age where it is easy to reach 'information overload', we are keen to understand the best way to reach our members. In addition to the website and event emails, we would like to know if you have any views about receiving information from your committee?

We currently have: a group on LinkedIn 'IMechE - Farnborough & Guildford Area'.  We are certainly not using this to it's full potential and are not active on any other of the available social media platforms.  We'd love to hear your comments and ideas and if anybody can provide practical help please get in touch.

Committee Members

We are always very pleased to welcome new members to our Area committee! Recently we were fortunate to have been able to welcome Sudeep Gurung.

Do you want to meet new people? How about making new professional contacts to expand your network? Or would you like to do something to broaden your horizons, or support a CEng application? Volunteering for your local Area committee can provide all of these, and more! If you'd like to get involved, in any capacity, please contact your local committee.

Come and See Us!

As always, we warmly welcome your feedback on any aspect of what we do on your behalf. Please send us your comments.

I hope you enjoy our website, and can find all the information you need about your local IMechE Area panel. Thank you for visiting us, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon.

Martin Nash

Chairman, Farnborough and Guildford Area Committee
