The Pursuit and Appreciation of Excellence

The Western Counties Branch was privileged to receive the President and Secretary of the Institution at the inaugural meeting on 10 October 1986. Professor Happold’s address was full of interest and, at the end, he turned the tables on the Branch by setting certain questions. The first was to ask for suggestions on how our standing in society could be improved, i.e. how to improve public appreciation of structural engineers; another, what we would like to see in The Structural Engineer. The two questions are closely related to two other matters of considerable importance to us all, i.e. CPD and closer working relationships. D.R. Wardle
