The AGM & Awards 2019 was held this year at the National Fluid Power Centre in Worksop. The NFPC are an IAgrE Commercial Partner and they generously offered to host us at their well appointed facility in the Midlands.
The day began with the Advisory Council meeting, which was extremely well attended and was full of very useful discussion around engaging with SMEs. This was followed by the AGM and after that the Awards Presentation, an opportunity to recognise the excellence that is present throughout the Institution with prizes presented to young student members to members with over 60 years of service to the industry!
At the end of the Awards Ceremony the President, Jane Rickson introduced the incoming CEO, Edward Hansom, who will start at IAgrE on 2 September, Ed introduced himself and promised to be a good servant to the Institution. Jane went on to thank Alastair for his effective management over the last 6 years and asked members to save the date for his farewell event on Tuesday 17 September (details to follow).
A superb lunch was served and this was followed by a fascinating tour of the training facilities at the NFPC, everyone was very impressed.
Below are a selection of photographs of the day - details of the Awards made and photographs of the Awardees are shown here.
