New Members for ICME
ICME has been working hard to promote membership of ICME to individuals in the industry and has been using the services of former National President Dr Tom Paterson to assist with this.
One new member, Paul Bosworth, was recently signed up during the Scottish Branch weekend conference in Peebles. Paul is the Engineering Manager with Metaullics Systems Europe and is pictured here with Tom Paterson after completing his membership application form.
Tom has been busy on behalf of ICME making a series of personal visits to foundries, die casters and engineering firms in the UK to promote membership, emphasising to them the advantages of membership, which include independent verification of castings industry experience through the membership grade structure, the ability to register as a professional engineer with the Engineering Council, technical support and information and networking opportunities.
Tom’s work, combined with the efforts of many of our existing members and staff, as well as the new fast-track method for joining, via the ICME website has helped to result in an increase in new member applications.
