Governance for the Future (G4F) - Information about proposals for future changes to the governance of the IET.
Just a reminder that regional events are being held (along with a webinar), providing members with an opportunity to find out more about the G4F proposals, and ensure that their feedback is delivered before the deadline in mid-March.  

There may be potential for LNs to schedule a separate event where there is a particularly high level of interest, to which an a Trustee could be invited to present on the proposals.  This would not necessarily have to be within the feedback period, indeed events in the 2015/16 session would be pertinent opportunities to explain the final proposals to members ahead of the SGM, proposed for January 2016.

IET Connect have announced the launch of its 2015 campaign - Because you care, we care too 
This year there is a particular focus on encouraging more carers to contact us for support.
Why carers?
•         1 in 10 people in the UK are carers, this increases to 1 in 5 for those aged 50-64 years 
•         42% of carers are male and 72% are still working in their job alongside their caring responsibilities, but
•         1 in 5 of them will give up work to care.
The issues which effect carers draw in all the elements of support that IET Connect offers including financial, emotional and employment assistance, and legal and debt advice. This support makes a real difference to the members and their families who contact us and is available to members around the world.
This campaign focuses on sharing the stories of those we support and highlights that as a carer you are not alone, that support is available.
The campaign includes:
•         a postcard, which will be sent to all UK based members over the next ten months
•         a microsite with videos, stories and images from those we support
•         a Facebook page 

The latest good practice guide "Volunteer Rewards" is now available to upload.

This guide give suggestions of how to recognise volunteer contribution in LNs and TPNs.   Let us know what you think - email us!

Welcome to the CC-UK!
CC-UK is the Communities Committee – UK, and is made up of a number of IET volunteers from around the UK, together with IET staff support. Our role is to support all communities activities in the UK, whether geographical, technical, young professionals, retired members or special interest. We are here to help, not to tell you what to do. We want to help you collaborate with other communities and resolve difficult issues.
Part of our role is to facilitate effective communication between UK communities and to assist with the sharing of best practice. This newsletter is one of the tools that we are using for this, and we also organise and run an annual Volunteers’ Conference. In addition we are rotating our three physical committee meetings a year around the UK, and running a roadshow for local communities the evening before our meeting. This gives us a real opportunity to listen to communities, as well as to explain what CC-UK are doing and what else is happening in the IET. Each member of the CC-UK also acts as a point of contact for a number of communities in the UK, and will arrange to meet with them during the year. A full list of CC-UK members can be found on the CC-UK MyCommunity site.
We have a significant role in planning and budgeting, and are responsible for allocating funding and other resources to the UK communities, within the overall budget set by the Community Resource Committee. Each year we set aside a small part of the UK budget to pay for new initiatives and rapid response topical events that communities wish to run and have not included in the annual planning cycle. 
We are always interested in hearing from you, please do get in touch with us through this site,the CC-UK Twitter feed or via email at
