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