On behalf of the North East Area Council I’d like to welcome you to our area council pages. Please take a few minutes to look at other pages contained in this section, which I hope you find interesting and useful. We always appreciate feedback, so if you have any comments or questions then please let us know.
Our area, and of course, that means your area, is an active one, with regular events, comprising of a mixture of guest lectures and outdoor visits. We have an exciting programme planned for 2016, although we are always keen to hear your ideas for future events, so if you have any thoughts about possible events, please let us know. In addition, your views on our past events would be most welcome. Were the events of interest? Did we do them at times that you could attend? What would we improve to make events accessible to more members?
Details of all our events can be found on this website and also on the sponsored pages found within ‘Railnews’.
We are also keen to see events directly link into the modules being studied as part of the education courses offered by the IRO, which will help support students in their studies. If you are a student in our area, we would welcome you at our events, or if you wish to have a chat about your studies, again please get in touch.
If you’ve never been to one of our events, and would like to, but perhaps are not quite sure about attending the first one, please contact one of our committee members (whose contact details can be found on the ‘Meet the Council’ area of this section of the website). We will arrange to meet you and be more than happy to show you round. Equally, if you are a member who does attend our events, why not bring a colleague along? Even better, encourage them to join the IRO and they can enjoy the same benefits from the Institution that you do.
We also actively participate in the Institutions mentor programme and if this is of interest to you, please get in touch and we will set this up for you. Remember, it’s your institution, make sure you get the most out of it!
I look forward to seeing you soon!
Area Chairman, North East Area Council
