Automotive Division board

There are currently 19 members of the Board, which represents a broad range of different industrial interests within the automotive industry. The year has seen many commercial pressures on the industry and it has been noticeable in the low attendance of members at meetings. Board members are encouraged to send deputies and by way of encouraging attendance, meeting venues are changed to different member sites. One such meeting was held at Corus, Haarlam in the Netherlands which enabled a very worthwhile post meeting introduction to facilities on the Corus site.

A recent idea to ease the problems of travel to meetings is a proposed e-meeting over the internet. A demonstration has been given and the new KTN web site has the necessary software to enable it.

We hope that you find this website useful and welcome any feedback.
