The 29th Institute of Corrosion Lunch at The Royal Overseas League, was another huge success with 177 people attending the event in Mayfair London.
Guests started to arrive at 11.30 for a pre-dinner drink and were seated by 12.30 for the first of two acts by The Sirens a singing quartet. It was really well received and set the scene for the afternoon. The meal was excellent and congratulations to the ROSL who never disappoint. After lunch the Chair of London Branch thanked everyone for their continued support of The Institute and in particular London Branch, the organising committee and the Branch Committee who continue to drive the Institute in London forward.
The 2 new initiatives were mentioned; Young Engineer Training Program and Route to Chartered Status which start in January 2018, along with the two new training programs; Fundamentals of Corrosion and the CP Training Program.
The President addressed the guests to a rapturous applause once again thanking everyone for their support and explaining the Institute has exciting plans that will start in Q1 2018.
After the raffle two guests were honoured with a small gift following their highly acclaimed Tallow Chandler award for their work in Materials and Corrosion, a tremendous achievement by Charlotte Vie in 2016 and Simon Bowcock in 2017.
The timing for the event this year was slightly different allowing guests to socialise and network at the ROSL until 7.00pm which appeared to be extremely popular; lots of notes being taken and exchanging of business cards.
Thanks again to all those that assisted in the organisation of the event and we look forward to another exciting event in December 2018
