East Midlands Branch Programme
The East Midlands Branch hosts meetings at 4.45 pm for a 5.00 pm start. It has returned to 100% in-person events and its members have resumed the tradition of introducing themselves at the start of each meeting. The Branch would like to welcome any new committee members should they wish to help organise any events. Meetings will continue to be held on the third Wednesday of the month. The speakers are yet to be decided at the time of publication.

Any updates to the programme will be publicised in NDT News and on the BINDT website as they develop.
