Message from the CIWEM Scottish Branch Chair


Welcome to the CIWEM Scottish Branch site!  We are an active and enthusiastic Branch, with an interesting and varied range of events to reflect our richly diverse membership.

Our aim for 2015/16, as ever, is to deliver high quality events with engaging subjects and speakers. Most of our events are free to attend, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. With site visits, workshops and evening talks, there is something for everyone.

I would like to extend an especially warm welcome to any new members of CIWEM! We continue our two annual New Members events this year, where you have an opportunity to practice your presentation skills to a group of peers and experienced professionals. It is also an excellent place to build your professional network. Our New Members representative is Chris Pittner -please contact him if you are interested, he wants to hear from you!

This year we are particularly excited about our Annual Symposium (May 2016), which we are running jointly with Centre of Research Expertise for Waters. We will be looking back at twenty years of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems implementation in Scotland, and looking forward to what the future holds for these systems. Please keep an eye on the website for the event programme, which will be released closer to the date.

If you are interested in becoming a Chartered Member of CIWEM, we have two Membership Workshops this year. There you can find out all you need to know about the different routes to chartership offered by CIWEM, and receive helpful advice for your application.

We have been making an effort to expand our events geographically to include members outside the central belt. This year we have events in Angus, Inverness and Perth - please come!

Are you involved in new and innovative work? We would love to hear from you! There are opportunities in our programme for you to share your work with other professionals. Please email a member of the Branch Committee with your ideas.

Want to bring a friend or two? Please do! You do not need to be a member to attend our events.  Whether you are a student or an experienced professional, joining CIWEM is an excellent way to develop your career and expand your professional network. All of our events are CPD-certified.

To join our mailing list, please email our Programme Secretary, Christine Murray, with a request. Christine sends fliers for our events, looks after bookings and generally keeps us running in ship shape!

If you have not received a programme for 2015/16, you can download from the events page. Please remember to always check individual event fliers for details.

Please remember, we are YOUR Scottish Branch Committee. We are always open to hearing feedback from you, including suggestions for new events.


I hope to see you soon!
