Message from the Branch Secretary
April/May 2013
Dear Members
A belated spring is in the air - at long last.
We have a busy couple of months ahead with two technical meetings, a conference and awards dinner, the AGM and our branch Annual Dinner.
We start with the Irwell Water Framework Directive Catchment Pilot meeting at Salford University on 17th April.
Our big event in April is the Pollution Challenge conference and awards dinner. This is a joint venture between CIWEM and the Environment Agency to harvest innovative ideas to tackle urban diffuse pollution from Universities. These ideas will be presented during the conference and the winning ideas will be announced at an awards dinner by Lord Chris Smith, Chairman of the Environment Agency. For further information please contact Sam Billington.
On 30th April we will be holding our Annual General Meeting, this year at Liverpool John Moores University. We will also be holding the technical meeting on Coastal Management that was postponed earlier this year.
Our branch Annual Dinner will be held on Friday 17th May. This year we return to Cranage Hall, Holmes Chapel., following a successful and enjoyable event at the same venue last year. Our Annual Dinner is a great opportunity to relax and network with water and environmental practitioners from across the region. This year the single ticket price is £65, and bookings from individuals, small and large groups are all very welcome. A three course dinner, inspirational speeches and entertainment are all included, so book now to avoid disappointment! Please contact Hannah Austin for more information.
Looking forward to June, we have a technical meeting on the challenges of creating the Canal and Rivers Trust.
As always, keep an eye on the events page for the latest information.

Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the North Western and North Wales Branch of CIWEM will take place at 6:30pm in the Upper Lecture Theatre, Peter Jost Enterprise Centre, Liverpool John Moores University, Byrom Street Campus, L3 3AF.

Message from the Branch Chair.

A very happy New Year to everyone.

We have an exciting programme of events to look forward to and enjoy this year.   Our events cover a range of topics from leakage management to the management of land contamination.  Branch events are a great opportunity to learn about developments across the varied disciplines within which CIWEM members are involved, to hear from experts in their field and to network with others.

Most of our branch events are free of charge, thanks to the support of local businesses and employers.  Information about the events will be available on our webpages and guests and non-members are always very welcome to attend.  Please support as many of the events as you can. We look forward to seeing you there! 

The prestigious Annual Dinner will be taking place in June, which offers wonderful professional opportunities to network with other environmental professionals and businesses. 

If you have any suggestions for an event, would like to present at or could host or sponsor an event, please get in touch with any member of the Committee.  

The Branch Committee is currently developing an exceptional programme of events for 2015. 

As a Committee, we're very keen to welcome new members and to support anyone aspiring to become a member or to become chartered.  Following the success of the 'Get Chartered! 'event held last autumn, we hope to be able to offer a similar event again this year. If you would like to discuss your application, please get in touch with any member of the Committee. 

Thank you for your continued support of CIWEM. 



Details of our events can also be found on our linkedin page and will be sent by email to members who have their registered address within the Branch's area.
