Our Volunteer Conference enables our IET volunteers from around the world to network, exchange views, and learn about volunteering best practice and latest developments. This year we’ll be switching from a physical-first to an online-first delivery.
During the day you will be able to interact with each other on a one-to-one basis utilising the Events Air networking facilities. There will also be three dedicated networking sessions throughout the day if you want to connect to other volunteers in a larger group.
The agenda itself is made up of a mixture of keynote speakers, videos, interactive seminars, networking opportunities, IET@150 celebrations, and the final of our new IET #PresentIn10 competition for young engineers and technicians. Download the programme to find out more about each session and whether you need to pre-book a place.
Some sessions will be limited in numbers, to allow for better collaboration with those involved so do book early to avoid disappointment. However, there are still plenty of sessions open to all. We will also be recording many of the sessions to be made available to those who are unable to attend a particular session.
There are many topics covered throughout the day we hope that volunteers who are able to attend will have the opportunity to help guide the IET through discussions on how volunteers are vital in delivering the 2030 Strategy and the importance of volunteers in developing and delivering the ED&I strategy.
This conference gives an excellent opportunity not only for volunteers to have an important voice in these topics but also to network with colleagues from other volunteering areas, to engage in some interesting workshops in the afternoon, continuing the themes from the keynotes or creating the opportunity for some CPD.
Not forgetting the chance to celebrate engineers and technicians; firstly through watching the three finalists in the PresentIn10 competition, how engineering and technology can help to solve a real-world societal challenge. Then voting for the winner. Secondly joining in celebrating the wonderful engineers and technicians we are lucky to have as volunteers for the IET, including finding out who the winners are for the Core Value Awards.
