Second Annual General Meeting of the IChemE Consultancy SIG

by Anishta Heeramun

Another year has elapsed since our last Annual General Meeting. On 24 June 2015, at 8.00 am (BST), we held our second AGM. As is now becoming our tradition, the AGM was held through an interactive webinar, to facilitate more SIG members to participate. A recording of the webinar and a copy of the presentation slides can be found here.

The main items discussed during the AGM were:

  • Adoption of the minutes of the first AGM
  • The election and re-election of committee members. This was done via the interactive poll during the webinar. The committee members were elected unanimously by all members present. The bios and profiles of committee members can be found here.
  • The adoption of the value proposition
  • Membership report: although the SIG has grown by 14%, we have lost two places in the ranking of the largest SIG. However, we do have the highest percentage of fee-paying members which shows that we are a value-for-money platform to connect with consultants worldwide.
  • Financial report: we are well within the budget allocated to the SIG. Our treasurer requested to send suggestions on how to spend next year’s budget by September 2015.

We have also called for a Webinar Coordinator and volunteers to assist our Newsletter Editor and Webmaster. If you are interested please contact or the SIG secretary at
