Welcome to the South West Area of the Institute of Water!
In the South West our mission statement is to be ‘Friendly, Supportive, Inclusive, Professional and Fun’. The committee work hard to implement our plans for the year in line with this mission statement, organising events about once a month. Each year we set ourselves a specific objective – our region’s goal for 2020 is to build on our work with higher education establishments and students during 2019. Our current area President, Professor Ruth Allen is particularly passionate about this, and we work hard in the South West area to provide an environment that allows us to support the water industry train, develop, respect, encourage and retain our younger people in the industry.
Our events programme, supporting people at all stages of their careers with CPD and providing excellent network opportunities, is made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of the area by 5 sponsors for 2019-20, without whom we would not be able to offer such a variety of events that often free to attend. During 2020 we will also be working to collaborate with other institutions in our region to deliver additional benefits to our members.
We always welcome comments, feedback and ideas from our membership to the area secretary, Carmen Snowdon, or to your local / company representatives. We look forward to meeting you at a local event soon.
Upcoming South West Area Events:
We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and the related Government guidelines. In light of an increase in confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the UK we have taken the difficult decision to postpone several of our IWater regional events.
Our main priority is the safety and health of our members, delegates, speakers and IWater team who are at the front line in providing essential water services and as a result we cannot justify putting anyone at risk.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
