Around the Regions


Scottish Region

The Institute Treasurer, David Blanchflower, recently visited the Scottish Region in his capacity as Council Delegate to the Region and has provided the following report.

It is pleasing to report that the Scottish Region is alive and well. The region has an active board under the chairmanship of Bob Smith. The region board meets twice a year at the Bathgate Golf Club and plans the events they offer to the Institute membership in Scotland. Other members of the board consist of Eddie McPhillips secretary and Jim liddle executive.

All the members of the region board demonstrated an intense desire to serve the needs of the region members by each year organising an appropriate programme of activities that will meet the needs for the professional development of members whilst at the same time providing a social element.

The main source of events and activities open to the region members are provided via the local Association of Professional Institutes (API) of which the region was a founder member. Each year the Association offers several dozen events including seminars, conferences and social events those IMS members in Scotland can participate in. Details of events can be found at the Association website:

www.apifife.org.uk

The decision of the Scottish Region to involve itself in the API demonstrates great wisdom as it not only provides a large number of events in which Institute members can participate but it also forges links with many other professional bodies. By spreading the cost of organising events all the member Institutes benefit. Equally being associated with a large number of prestige events also raises the profile and image of the IMS.

Any region members wishing to be involved in the region board should contact Eddie McPhillips on 01506 438581.

Eastern Region

The season of Boxing Day sponsored swims is fast approaching. The charity being supported this year is for a little girl of 8 who got very badly burnt. Undoubtedly King George's Fund for Sailors will get a look in with the `sea sampling' going on. Talking of KGFS - the region has received a formal request from them - more like a challenge - would the IMS members who have now acquired an acknowledged flair for fund raising on the annual barge cruise, be willing to run the bar at the charity concert given by the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines in aid of KGFS funds at the Royal Hospital School (Naval) Holbrook near Ipswich on Saturday evening 26 January 2002. A challenge I'm sure the IMS will rise to and an opportunity not to be missed - mobility of labour, utilisation of every skill, let alone the organisation and management of the occasion. The region also received a `Winter Offer' from Marine Event Management Ltd for a 'static' Thames barge event at St Katharines Dock, Tower Bridge. This is one of the organisations we were referred to when our barge trip on the Thistle got cancelled. …
