The Executive meet last Thursday to do the monthly review of Engineers Ireland finances which are relatively healthly.
We also discussed the proposed Communications Campaign for Chartered Engineer due to commence on radio and TV later this Autumn and to run for at least 2 years.
I don't wish to spoil the viewer's or the listener's fun in terms of the lyrics and theme music which will be used. Suffice it to say that it will be impactful and will showcase all the main Engineering Sectors in Ireland using some of our engineering members as role models.
This will be part of the public profile raising by Engineers Ireland to show the relevence of the Chartered Engineer in modern Irish society.
We also got an update on the Review of our Bylaws to be completed by the end of the year.
Finally we reviewed the very many thanks and compliments sent by Leaving Cert students to Engineers Ireland following receipt of their Results last month. 'Thank you for the free Maths grinds which helped me get my grades' was the general sentiment expressed. This again is Engineers Ireland doing something tangible and sustainable going forward. Better to be doing something than simply talking about it!
