CEO Update – September/October 2022

Welcome to Making Waves. At last, I am able to report that we have held a successful series of face-to-face membership and industry events this year. We started in Aberdeen in February and by the end of next month we will have completed all our regional events together with two technical seminars. Many thanks go to all our members who have taken part and contributed to the success of these events. Thanks also go to the IMCA secretariat and in particular our communications team for getting us quickly back into the swing of being on the road again.
