Our hugely popular networking events provide excellent opportunities for you to meet other local members, share experiences and develop new strategic relationships.

The events are free for members to attend but prior registration is essential due to high demand for places.
In November 2018 we welcomed Kent members to The Royal Engineers Museum in Chatham where we had the pleasure of a tour around the Armouries, Waterloo map and the surrounding Museum followed by networking and refreshments.
We would like to thank The Engineers Museum for hosting.
