Mercia Branch Update

  • Tuesday May 14, 2019

Branch AGM and Committee Update

The Mercia Branch committee recently held its AGM at Jacobs house in Shrewsbury. We were very pleased to welcome two new committee members: Hannah Clarke and Owen Witherow, who both work at Jacobs. William Painter is now the branch vice-chair and Richard Harman has moved up to the role as chair. Mark Fleming and Trevor Fletcher remain as the branch honorary secretary and treasurer respectively. The branch committee currently has some vacancies, so if you’re interested in getting involved then please get in touch! It’s a rewarding way to give something back to our industry, helping other people develop as well as contributing to your own CPD.

Branch Sponsorship

We’re delighted to announce that we have two main sponsors for 2019: Tracsis and Applied Driving Techniques.

Tracsis are a leading supplier of traffic surveys, data collection and analytics, along with event traffic management services. They have been a long-standing supporter of the IHE Mercia Branch and awards evening, so we thank them for their continued support.

Applied Driving Techniques (ADT) are a welcomed new sponsor for 2019. They provide fleet safety and management solutions and have strong links with Brake, the road safety charity. Their business is based around promoting occupational road safety solutions, so they’re a great fit for the branch and we would like to express our thanks for their support.

CPD Events

The committee is currently working on a programme of free training events to take place across the Mercia area on a variety of topics, so details will be published soon. We are always open to suggestions for events, so if you have an idea or would like to host an event then please drop us a line at
