Welcome to the South Wales Region

South Wales Region Officers 2019-2020
 
D. Harwood (Chair)  H. Jones (Vice Chair)
A. Bayton (Hon. Treasurer) A. Hall (Hon. Secretary)

We have over 2100 members here, with an active Regional Committee and a very keen Young Members Panel, both of which produce a programme of lectures and visits for each season. Feel free to download our current programme and we hope to see you at an event soon.  

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

  

  • All of our members can pick up a copy of our  programme card at our events throughout the Region. 

 

  • 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 updates, changes and reminders.

 

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

 

  • Our 2019 Newsletter is now available.  Please download it here

In conclusion, we are always looking for enthusiastic members who wish to be more involved in the Region’s activities as IMechE ambassadors. (Frankly, it looks very good on your curriculum vitae plus you get to meet the 'movers and shakers' face to face.) If you would like to support us, then do please contact us. If you are starting out in your career and would like to be at the centre of IMechE affairs, the Young Members Panel would like to hear from you – contact Mathew Holt, the YM’s South Wales Chair.
