It's your EI – get involved
Fancy trying something new? Volunteering with the EI can be a fantastic way of expanding your skills and network, raising your profile and making a real difference in the energy sector – and a number of EI’s committees and panels are recruiting this spring.
The Professional Affairs Committee (PAC) is the standing committee which looks after membership, professional development and the things which affect members professional lives. The committee is looking for a number of new members including a Chartered Energy Manager and Chartered Petroleum Engineer to complement the skills already on the committee. They would also be pleased to hear from members with experience of developing apprenticeship frameworks, and there is also a vacancy for an Associate Member. PAC meets three times a year.
The Benevolent Fund helps members in need and is currently looking at new ways of supporting members wellbeing. The Benevolent Fund management committee meets two to three times a year and would be particularly keen to hear from members who have experience of managing charitable funds and giving.
The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Panel meets each summer to review CPD submissions from members and looks to provide guidance and support members’ professional development. Recent changes to the CPD requirements for engineering registrants means that the Panel would like to provide feedback to more members, and the Panel would like to hear in particular from Chartered Engineers who would like to get involved, as well as those who hold ESOS Lead Assessor status to help meet requirements set by the Environment Agency.
The Accreditation and Approvals Panel is looking for a professional member who would be interested in joining our pool of Industrial Representatives who take part in EI accreditation visits to universities and companies to review and accredit learning programmes. As part of the role you would give an honest perspective on skills, needs and current practice in your area of expertise and be willing to travel to take part in accreditation visits from time to time, the Panel would be particularly keen to hear from Chartered Engineers and Chartered Energy Managers and members who work in oil and gas.
