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.
If any member would like to speak at the meeting or propose an item for the agenda, please contact the Branch Secretary before Friday 26th April.

Message from the Branch Chair.

Dear Members, 

A very Happy New Year to everyone! 

The Branch Committee has organised an exciting programme of events which we can look forward to and enjoy this year.   

We're in the midst of updating the webpages and information about all 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. 

Back by popular demand in April, is the 'Get Chartered!' event.  This event is an unmissable opportunity to receive advice and support with your application and to prepare for your interview to become a member of CIWEM or Chartered. Learn about the application process, what to include to demonstrate competence, what to expect at the interview and discuss your application with those in the know.

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 other environmental professionals.

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.  

None of our achievements as a Branch could have been possible without the continued support of our membership or the continued dedication of the Committee, whose members work incredibly hard throughout the year to organise our branch events and to support us as members of CIWEM. 

Thank you to everyone for all their hard work and support.   

Gan ddumuno iechyd a hapusrwydd i chi yn 2016

Wishing you health and happiness in 2016
