STM Week 2021 – STM Day – Reinforcing the value of membership – Members only

STM represents a vibrant and dynamic professional community; this is reflected in the many activities and projects being worked on at any one time by its standing committees, its Task Forces, and its own staff and consultants. 

Come along to the first-ever “STM Day” to learn more about the work that STM does on behalf of its members and to support them in their professional roles. You will also learn how you can get more involved in these activities, particularly by joining a committee.  

Membership of one of our committees offers the opportunity to meet colleagues and industry leaders, exchange ideas, share experiences and collaborate for the benefit of the industry and for your own personal professional development. 

Registration is free and open to all Members.
