Welcome to 2021. Although some members enjoyed a successful trading year, 2020 is best forgotten and consigned to the history books in my opinion.
This year marks the 30th anniversary since the inception of IIMS. Sadly, we will not be able to commemorate this landmark with face-to-face celebrations as was my original plan. But we are aiming to put together a two-day online celebration in June to mark the occasion. This will coincide with the AGM, so keep an eye out for further details soon.
A new year brings new training opportunities. At the time of writing, Brexit negotiations are still on a knife edge. But I am delighted that Ross Wombwell has agreed to deliver a webinar on 20 January entitled Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) and CE marking – what we know post Brexit so far.
James Renn has done a great job in assembling a first class line up of seventeen speakers for the IIMS US Conference on 22/23 January. Make sure you do not miss this opportunity to be part of a great event and get some CPD points in your bank early in the year!
