East Midlands New Members' Group
The East Midlands New Members' Group (NMG) runs a programme of activities for new or budding water and environmental management professionals in the East Midlands.
Established in 2012, with the support of the main East Midlands Branch Committee, we take pride in our passion, innovative thinking and implementation of ideas. Since August, we have hosted events and have planned a calendar of activities specifically for those needing to develop an understanding of the industry.
NMG events are designed to provide a platform for people to become involved with CIWEM, increase confidence and competence, improve knowledge, accrue CPD and meet people in similar positions in their career. Our events enable networking at various career levels ranging from students through to Chartered professionals in an open, diverse and highly supportive environment.
For 2013, our theme is 'Inclusion & Integration' where we are seeking to increase awareness of the NMG and broaden our membership base throughout the East Midlands. To do this we have planned a programme of social and workshop events and seek to work closely with our neighbouring New Members Groups to bring real benefits to our members.
So, if you are asking yourself any of the following...
 What is it like to work in the water and environmental sector?
 How do I join CIWEM and what are the benefits at early stages of my career?
 How can I increase my awareness of the water and environment industry and current issues?
 I'd like to know more about a particular topic; can the NMG hold an introductory workshop with a professional speaker?
 How do I gain experience of presenting to wide audiences and peers outside of my employer/mentor?
 How do I become involved in the activities of CIWEM and show my commitment to the Institution?
 What is the best way of establishing a professional network locally across many different sectors and companies?
...then the NMG is a great place to start. To learn more about the NMG, future events or if want to become involved on the committee please contact the NMG Committee at eastmids@ciwem.org
We look forward to hearing from you!

East Midlands New Members' Group

The East Midlands New Members' Group (NMG) was founded in 2012 with the help of the main East Midlands Branch Committee, with the purpose of providing a local platform for new members of CIWEM to engage in various activities to aid the development of their professional expertise.

The NMG is at its core an advanced networking platform where the role of the new members is to work together as a wider team and co-ordinate available resources to provide the public at large (experts in the field or otherwise) with new ideas, designs or solutions that can provide new insights into the understanding or regulation of the water/environmental industry.

The events result in the accrual of CPD towards your CIWEM application, as the majority of the activities undertaken are designed to increase personal competence by fostering/developing interpersonal skills, increasing knowledge and encourage lateral thinking to provide optimum, yet efficient outcomes.  Many of the activities organised also provide excellent opportunities for expert feedback from leaders in the field in an open, diverse and highly supportive environment.

For 2015 our objectives are to increase awareness of the NMG, broaden our membership base throughout the East Midlands. To do this we have planned a programme of social and workshop events and seek to work closely with our neighbouring New Members Groups to bring real benefits to our members.
