Title: New for 2018 - IET Volunteer Core Values Awards
It's always good to recognise people for a job well done, especially when they give their services and time for free!
The IET relies on volunteers from around the world to inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community. All our volunteers make an amazing contribution and it’s important to recognise the efforts of those special people who go the extra mile, week after week, so we are delighted to announce a new way to acknowledge their achievements.
Our Volunteer Core Values Awards programme recognises the contribution made by IET volunteers who consistently demonstrate our core values – integrity, excellence and teamwork – through their volunteering activities. So if a particular volunteer (or team of volunteers) has impressed you, please don’t keep it to yourself, because now is the time to take action!

Nomination closing date: 30 June 2018

Electric Vehicles - The journey travelled and the road ahead - by The North Wales Society of Engineers

A short review of the history of electric cars will be followed by where we are today with all forms of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and transport. Most of the presentation will cover the future, what BEVs are to be around and when, what will their effect be and what are they to be used for. What do you think? Come along and find out, they will be used for much more than you think, more than for transport, they will be used almost 24/7, why?

Learning Welsh!

In Wales it is often useful for Engineers and Managers to learn Welsh to help promote their careers and job prospects, indeed, in many jobs, a knowledge of the Welsh Language is often essential to gain employment.

Yn wir, mewn sawl maes, mae gwybodaeth o’r iaith Gymraeg yn hanfodol yn aml iawn er mwyn cael swydd. Mae canolfan yn Ninbych sy’n canolbwyntio ar ddysgu Cymraeg i oedolion.
