IPAF Regional Meetings in the UK & Ireland

IPAF regional meetings are a simple and effective way to learn about the industry and meet other colleagues. They take place three to four times per year across the UK and Ireland.

Regional meetings provide both members and non-members with the opportunity to hear about the work of IPAF, about recent developments within the industry, and to learn from powered access specialists. They also provide a chance for attendees to network with colleagues from across the industry.

Regional meetings are held in the evening, usually starting at 18:00 and lasting for 2-3 hours. There are normally presentations from an IPAF speaker and two or three other speakers, followed by questions and answers. This is rounded off with a light buffet supper for which there is a nominal charge.

Don't miss this easy and cost-effective way to learn about IPAF and the powered access industry. Look out for a regional meeting taking place near you.

If you are interested in hosting a regional meeting, e-mail the IPAF Membership Officer & Event/Committee Coordinator.
