Overview

Please join the ICE South Branch AGM where the current Chair, Nick Gray will briefly reflect on the past year before handing over to the incoming Chair, Zoe Hutchison who will introduce the 2023/24 committee and provide an insight into the exciting plans for the coming year.

ICE South Branch is made up of several committees, special interest groups, who work together towards the ICE vision and values through a wide variety of events and activities throughout the year.

ICE South Branch committees are always seeking new members from all membership grades to join as volunteers to help drive the regional ICE agenda.

Following the formal AGM, we are delighted to announce we will be hosting an engaging panel discussion about the skills shortage experienced within civil engineering. The panel will include Maggie Stefaniak and Colin Minto.
