Welcome to IET Scotland North

Welcome to the IET Scotland North section. You'll find it's an active section with many great events scheduled across the Scotland North region. The event programme will look to engage a wide target audience and cover a broad range of topics to inspire, to inform and to influence. I would encourage you to come along to our events where you’ll be able to learn, meet people, share your ideas and experiences and get involved.  I hope you enjoy the programme and feel free to engage with the committee members if you have ideas and requests for events. It is a privilege to be your Scotland North chair and I look forward to meeting many of you.
