A. Bayton (Hon. Treasurer) A. Hall (Hon. Secretary)

We have over 2000 members here in the South Wales Region, with an active Regional Committee and a very keen Young Members Panel, both of which produce a programme of lectures, social events and visits each year. Feel free to take a look at our events page and download our current newsletter. On behalf of our Chairman we hope to see you at one of our events soon.  

Our members are kept informed of our events programme via a number of methods:


  • Event posters are distributed to many academic institutions and certain  companies in the Region.

  • Members who have given an email contact address to the IMechE can be notified of events via HQ’s list server, and may be sent event updates, changes and reminders.


  • Please also follow our region on Twitter if you have an account or check out our Twitter Web Page.


  • Our 2021 Newsletter is now available.  Please download it here.
