Annual General Meeting
The 2017 AGM was held on Thursday 27th April at the University.
If there are any members wishing to join the Societies commitee or nominate members for committe roles please could you speak to the President (Prof Jeremy Everard) or contact the Society.
During the summer a series of industrial visits are organised to places of engineering interest, usually followed by an informal meal.
The Annual Dinner is the highlight of the Society's year and is usually attended by Members and Guests with the Society inviting a special guest(s) to address the dinner and toast the Society. Over the years the Society has been fortunate to have guests from across society including the civic party, clergy, MPs, MEPs, academics and Directors of large companies based in Yorkshire.
The Society holds a number of other events and has a Theatre Group organised by Mr P G Bowers.
