Welcome to the Eastern Region Summer 2019

Dear Members and visitors to this page,

This year the Eastern Region Committee are organising a major event at Duxford for existing members and to welcome new members and fellows to the Region. Colin Brown, IMechE CEO will be welcoming the new members and this will be followed by a talk on the Shard, the stylish London skyscraper and the tallest building in Europe. Our speaker will be John Krancioch who was the designer of the structure of this technically advanced building. The ticket price includes a buffet and entrance to the Duxford exhibits.

The summer is a quiet time for Near You activities but later in the year will see the kick off for area and panel events. Please support our events this autumn and, if you enjoy these, join your area committee and take part.
