Chairman's welcome

Welcome to the IET Bristol Network on MyCommunity. Please let us have any suggestions (for this site in particular, and for events in the local area in general), and please give some thought to volunteering and getting involved on our committee.

You can contact any of our Executive committee members on MyCommunity via messaging or post a comment in the communites discussion forums!

About the Bristol Network

The Bristol Network organises a monthly programme of informative lectures throughout the academic year.  Most of our meetings are held at either the University of the West of England or the University of Bristol.  The network also organises site visits and other professional development events around the region.  Events are advertised in our annual programme booklet and updated on this website.
