IHEEM’s Council in conjunction with Head Office have taken the decision to cancel all our planned IHEEM 2020 events. This includes the Authorising Engineer Conference, our Regional Conference and Exhibition, Healthcare Estates Conference, Exhibition and Awards Dinner 2020 and the 2020 Dublin conference which was previously deferred to November 2020.
The safety of members, sponsors, exhibitors, delegates, staff, and volunteers along with our commitment to address our wider social responsibilities is paramount and following Government and WHO guidance we have concluded that holding face to face events with large numbers of people is both impractical and puts many at undue risk, which is something we are not willing to do.
As a Professional Engineering Institute, we take our commitment to our members regarding their continued professional development (CPD) very seriously. Therefore, we are looking to develop a series of online events to ensure our support to our members to fulfil their CPD requirements is met. I am confident that these new opportunities will prove useful regarding CPD regulations alongside providing an active base for learning, knowledge sharing and best practice until we can all meet again in a safe environment.
