A message from Gordon Brown, IHE Scottish Branch chairman

  • Wednesday October 16, 2019

The past year has continued to be very active for the Scottish Branch. There were interesting technical evenings throughout the period and the branch would be grateful if all members could provide their thoughts and opinions with regard to future topics or areas of interest.

We are looking for issues within the industry that would be, firstly, beneficial to learn more about and secondly would be of interest to members and help increase attendance.

Any information provided will be considered by the committee with a view to delivering evening seminars that will continue to benefit members.

Could members submit their thoughts or provide information/comments on how the Branch could improve the delivery of evening seminars to the Scottish Branch email address

I would like to take this opportunity to thank members for their support in attending the evening seminars and presentations and look forward to meeting everyone again at the programme of events for next year.

Gordon Brown
IHE Scottish Branch Chairman
