The Council of the United Kingdom Society for Trenchless Technology (UKSTT) held its Annual General Meeting on 13 October 2022, at Camden House in Kenilworth.
Chair Dawn Greig presented her report and confirmed her extended three-year term on Council has now come to and end and Ian Ramsay will continue as incoming Chair. Dawn has published a report of her 3-year term that is available to view here: https://www.flipsnack.com/lynnmac/ukstt-chair-report-sept-2019-october-2022/full-view.html. The report is a detailed review of what the Society has achieved over the last few years and credits the accomplishments to the whole of the Council who selflessly commit so much of their spare time to ensuring the organisation is run so effectively. Please take a look.
Among the report highlights was the Society’s intention to continue working on relationships with the UK Utility Companies and are pleased to welcome Scottish Water & SGN as new UKSTT Patrons.
Tom Sangster & Nick Spenceley both stood down from Council. Dawn thanked them both for their contribution over the years but with a special thanks to Tom who has worked tirelessly and made such a big difference to the organisation of the Technical & Education committee. The new appointments to Council this year were Iain Naismith, IKT & Peter Cheers, Buckhurst Plant Hire.
