For many members of the Institute of Quarrying (IQ), one of the main benefits is networking with industry professionals at local branch events, with the value of sharing knowledge, experiences and advice second to none.
The IQ branch network is at the heart of our member communities. Local branches provide opportunities to get together and meet other professionals with a view to help and support each other. Some members become volunteers, helping to arrange these events. Events are designed to share knowledge and ideas affecting quarrying and provide valuable continuing professional development (CPD). These regional blogs will focus on the people that make these branch events so worthwhile.
