Our Branch

The Eastern Branch is the newest of the Branches, having only been formed in 2007 and covers East Anglia and parts of the East Midlands. Activities within the branch include technical evenings and site visits which are often water industry related topics, although we are currently moving into topics from the gas and electricity industries which tend to be hosted in Peterborough. Please check with the Branch for more information and in the events section for upcoming events.

This year's annual dinner was hosted in Peterborough, but we aim to move this around the region year-on-year. The Eastern Branch is a great host to a number of fantastic networking events for both senior and younger members of the branch.

The Eastern Branch is fortunate to have an active Young Professionals Network which organises and runs a number of events in the region, including; technical paper evenings, an educational day and a presentation competition with a significant cash first place prize.
