Following successful meetings with high attendance, since the reforming the Branch at the start of 2012, our current prospective attendees list is always being updated.

If you wish to be added to our mailing list (where you will only ever be 'bcc' copied), then please email our current programme organiser (as detailed above).

We'd like to hear your thoughts on suggested venues and the sort of activities you'd like to participate in. What would you like to see and do? Can you suggest a suitable topic for an event, or host us at your facility? We really want to encourage participation from personnel across different industries and institutions. After all, who knows when the next problem your company encounters could be solved by someone you've met at the Branch meeting suggesting some kit or offering you some advice on how to solve an issue? Within NDT, knowledge and contacts are essential to tackling emerging issues and improving current methods. We want this to be the cornerstone of our successful Branch. Come to a meeting – we are a friendly bunch from a wide spectrum of industries.
