Regional Groups

Regional Groups organise meetings, events and site visits and are open to anyone. All Institute members get invited to their local group events.

Regional Groups can organise visits to places you wouldn’t otherwise get easy access to such as Jaguar Land Rover, RNIB, Highways Agency, National Air Traffic Services.

Read about the latest Group activities in our blog or browse their upcoming events. Contact group organisers, listed below, to keep up to date with what’s happening or to put forward an idea for a meeting or visit.
