Jon PrichardWelcome to this bumper 10th birthday edition of Register News!  Looking back at the first issue dated January 2002 it has been interesting to note that, apart from the more modern look, the layout and content of the enewsletter remains very similar.  When we carried out our most recent readers’ survey, respondents indicated that they were happy with this, especially as so many now read Register News online.  However, we always encourage feedback and suggestions, so will carry out another short survey later in 2012.

I am sure that 2012 will bring us many more reasons to celebrate.  As well as being the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee it is, of course, the year that the world’s greatest sporting event comes to London. 

The engineering profession is playing a major role in the preparations of the Olympics, and we’d love to hear from any Engineering Council registrants who have been working on Olympics related projects.  If you have been involved and would be prepared to share your story in order to help us promote the role of professional engineers, please contact our editor Sue Brough on .

The more observant of our readers might have noticed that our Board of Trustees has recently made a slight alteration to our Vision.  This is now ‘That society continues to have confidence and trust in the engineering profession’ with the change of emphasis reflecting that there has traditionally been confidence in the engineering profession and that our role, with your support, is to ensure this continues.

Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012.
