About us

The Surrey Retired Members Section (RMS) of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Surrey Local Area Network was founded in 1989. It was set up to enable members of the IET who have retired from their normal full-time occupations to meet up with like-minded friends and colleagues on a regular basis.

The major activity of the RMS is a meeting held on the first Wednesday of each month at East Horsley Village Hall. Proceedings begin with a time of social interaction over coffee followed by a talk given by a visiting speaker. The talks themselves are sometimes of a technical nature outlining, for example, recent developments in some aspect of engineering or perhaps reviewing the historic development of a particular technology; such technical presentations are interspersed with general-interest talks on a variety of subjects. Bearing in mind the widely-differing backgrounds of our members and the fact that we encourage spouses and guests to attend, we urge even our "technical" lecturers to make their presentations as accessible as possible.

In addition to these monthly meetings many of our members belong to one or more of our sub-groups the most active of which is the PC group which meets monthly at Newdigate Village Hall; we also have a Walking group, a portfolio group and a music & theatre group who meet from time to time. The RMS also organises a Christmas lunch each December, and a cream tea follows our July meeting which is held in the afternoon. Further details of some of these activities are to be found on other pages of this website. Members also participate in activities of the IET Surrey Local Area Network.

Our technical activities are supported financially by the IET; our non-technical/social activities are funded by an annual subscription which currently stands at 10 per annum.
