May Event Summary

Thanks to all those who attended our Summer Event at IET Teacher Building in Glasgow on 11th May. Special thanks to our two excellent speakers - Bill Matthews and Richard Bradshaw for two thought provoking and engaging keynotes and to our four volunteers for lightning talks which were very well received - Sue Atkins, Brian Ferrie, Stuart Caven and Cassandra Leung. There was a good degree of interaction and networking throughout the event and this continued at Sloans bar into the wee hours.

New Committee Members

We are delighted to welcome three new members to the committee with immediate effect. They are Sue Atkins, Stuart Caven and Julie Gardiner and I'm sure you will all join me in wishing them well in coming on board.
