Materials Society of Cumbria wins IOM3 Local Society of the Year 2009
IOM3 has recently awarded us the small society category (<30 average attendance) of the above for 2009.
This award which is in its inaugural year is awarded to the UK local society which in the opinion of the judges has demonstrated the highest performance over the year in terms of various criteria including improved attendance, conversion of non-members to members, schools education programme, and support to members' CPD.
The winner of the large society (>30 average attendance) category was Cleveland Institute of Engineers.
There are around 65 Local Societies affiliated to the IOM3 in the UK, so we can be justifiably proud of our achievement.
The prize of £1000 which has to be spent on running an event of our choice, is particularly timely given our up-coming 50th Anniversary in 2010!
