Polish night of promise

NW ASSOCIATION Graduates and Students Committee is holding a fund raising CPD evening on 17 August in connection with Central and Eastern European Initiative.

The initiative aims to develop the activities of the ICE's main central and eastern European committees at a local level, particularly among the younger members of the profession, within the North West.

The main activity on the CEEI is establishing a two way cultural exchange programme for young civil engineers between the UK and C&E Europe. This includes setting up a pilot exchange visit to Poland in October for five to six young engineers from the North West.

The visit will be multi centred, meeting young Polish civil engineers working in government, universities and private sector organisations. The main challenge for the committee has been raising the funding for the initial trip. However, it is now well on the way to meeting the target £4,500 fund.

The CPD evening at CUBE aims to promote the activities of the CEEI and provide members in the North West with an insight of what life is like as a civil engineer in central and eastern Europe. CPD talks on life and work in Russia, environmental issues in Poland and the work of the ICE in the region will form the centrepiece of the event.

Polish food and beer, a series of themed fairground style sideshows and a charity auction to raise money for the CEEI will all take place at CUBE. A themed after party at Revolution Vodka Bar in Manchester will round off the night's activities for those who wish to stay out and party until late.
