Event Directors' Committee

The aim of the Event DC is to support WES staff by suggesting themes, speakers and potential venues for upcoming events, and advising on what female engineers may be interested in. The role of the DC members is to support the activities of the WES staff. Members of the DC may be asked to approach potential venues and potential speakers.

The Events Group is made up of the WES staff member, at least one and a maximum of two trustees, and other members of WES. The maximum number of members who can join the group is eight and does not include the WES staff member or Trustee(s). The WES staff member and Chair may decide to add a maximum of two additional members to the group throughout the year if their skills are deemed to be necessary for the group.

Current chair: Katherine Critchley

Current Secretary: Kim Everitt
