Ian had a very fruitful and cordial meeting with CEO, Steven Matthews, President, John Field, Technical Director, Hywel Davies , Membership Development Manager ( International), Nick Everitt, Director of Membership, Carilyn Burman and Services Manager, Rowen Crowley. This was a chance to discuss the ANZ Region and our 2020 Strategic Plan, which was well received in principle and will be formally submitted before the end of 2016.
Ian also attended the CIBSE/ASHRAE Young Engineers Awards at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Regional Liaison Council meeting with other regional Chairs, the CIBSE Council Meeting and the CIBSE Presidents Dinner and Awards Night, held at the Institution of Civil Engineers.
