About the Network

The South Yorkshire Network provides a local face of the IET through a main committee of active volunteers with support from full time IET staff. We have an active YP committee who, together with the main committee, plan and deliver our events programme. Also covering parts of North Nottinghamshire and North East Derbyshire, the Network serves the following major centres: Sheffield, Rotherham, Mexborough, Doncaster, Barnsley, Worksop, Retford, Chesterfield, The Hope Valley and Bakewell.
Help us to inspire future engineers

The South Yorkshire Network Committee would like to invite an active member to help out with the work of the committee. In particular we need someone who would be interested in organising technical visits and /or lectures (perhaps two per year) specifically aimed at our many senior and retired members within the network.

There are also vacancies for various roles on the main committee which would suit active members who would like to contribute to the work of the Local Network.

Will those interested please contact John Lawrence (Chair) at or Mike Frain (Secretary) at
