We are always looking for new ideas to support our local Continued Professional Development activities, and would welcome suggestions. Better still. Why don't you come along and join our committee and help to influence and organise the stuff we do.

Wishing you all the best,

Honorary Chair – IMechE West Cumbria Area Committee

The IMechE West Cumbria Area Annual Dinner is a non-profit making event for the Institution; however it aims to generate sufficient funds to allow a range of educational initiatives to take place within the county.  In order to make such an event possible we rely on the support and sponsorship of key organisations and IMechE members. It also helps local companies demonstrate a positive Social Impact.

Following the success of our returning IMechE West Cumbria Area Annual Dinner back in Jun, planning will start soon on the 2024's Annual Dinner.

As in previous years there will be a number of sponsorship opportunities, with a range of costs and associated benefits. Please contact Simon Farrell for information.
