We have made great strides in continuing the work started by the previous Presidents in focusing on delivering value for our members.  The committee who worked on the support we are giving in the ‘Route to Chartership’ have delivered an excellent package, drawing on personal and wider industry knowledge.  The Young ICORR group goes from strength to strength with Chris Bridge at the helm, and I see the network that exists within our current membership being extended through this group.

As ever, I am thankful to our volunteers who give so much of their time to keep us functioning and relevant to our members.  Good news is that ICorr have now been approved by the Engineering Council’s Quality Assurance Committee as a Professional Affiliate for a further five years.

I have also represented the Institute at the Elcometer world conference, celebrating 70 years’ service to the corrosion industry

The AGM was held at the end of November and this also marked the half way point in my Presidency, and on reflection a lot has been achieved, but there is certainly more still to be done!

I would finally like to wish all members A Merry Christmas.

Sarah Vasey, ICorr President
