South Western Branch – Election of Branch Officers and Committee Members

  • Friday April 22, 2022

IHE’s 57th South Western Branch’s Annual General Meeting is being held this year as an online event on Thursday, 9th June 2022 at 19.00. Details will be forwarded shortly.

The South Western Branch is keen to see a wider representation of volunteers to help to run the Branch and to assist with the organisation of local events.

The Branch Committee prides itself in its proactive approach to delivering beneficial events for the membership, but we are only as strong as that membership and therefore need your assistance. Your committee normally meets five times a year. For the past two years during the pandemic the Committee Meetings and the Branch AGM has been an online event. It is the Committee intention to follow this format now with the occasional face to face Committee Meeting.

If you feel that the time has come for you to put something back into your Institute, and you would like to stand as a Committee Member, please arrange for the nomination form (below) to be completed and returned by Monday, 23rd May 2021 to the Branch Secretary at

You will see from the list of Branch Officers and Committee Members for 2022/2023 in the document below that the branch is short of representation in some areas.

Andy Brown will be standing down as Branch Chairman and Julie Watts will be installed as Branch Chairman for the next two years. Andy Brown will become the Immediate Past Chairman and Andy Cole becomes the Past Chairman.

Dennis Symons will stand down as Past Chairman and will cease to be an ex–officio committee member, but can be re-elected in accordance with IHE Branch Byelaws.

Helen Pickett will stand down as Branch Secretary and will cease to be a committee member, but can be re-elected in accordance with IHE Branch Byelaws. John Dymott will also stand down to allow the one third rotation to occur, but can be re-elected in accordance with IHE Branch Byelaws.
