Regional Groups organise meetings, events and site visits and are open to anyone. All Institute members get invited to their local group events.
Regional Groups can organise visits to places you wouldn’t otherwise get easy access to such as Jaguar Land Rover, RNIB, Highways Agency, National Air Traffic Services.
