Mercia Branch Update
- Thursday April 11, 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.

Our annual awards evening returns to the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre on Thursday 23rd May. Entries for this year’s awards evening close on Friday 12th April 2019 and we’re accepting entries for schemes located across the UK.

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. https://tracsistraffic.com/
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. https://applieddriving.co.uk/
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
