Our Annual Report for 2022 was approved at our AGM on 1 June 2023 and is available here.  

One of the highlights of the year was our paying membership number remained above 19,000. Reflecting the diversity of engineering talent, our new members joining during the year represented 61 countries. The achievement of delivering 237 CPD events including 28 new specialist courses and 251 Sector events (the vast majority free of charge), with almost 15,000 Sector-member attendees, represents a significant achievement by the Team in Clyde Road; this was against a backdrop of the uncertainty of a re-opening economy as pandemic restrictions eased.
