IQCS 2014 AGM and Working Forum

The AGM was held on Thursday, 13th November 2014 in London.
As well as our annual update of IQCS activities, Debrah Harding, COO of the MRS, talked us through the latest developments at the MRS and discussing the changes in the new MRS Code of Conduct. We also had an update from the MRBA.

Prior to this, Facts International shared with us their years of experience which lead to them recently winning the Best Field Force category in the recent MRS Operations Awards.

The winners of Best Support Services, Spectrum Viewing Facilities represented by Directors Donal Kelly and Ben Parker revealed their recipe for success.
The AGM and Working Forum were very well attended and we would like to thank everyone involved in the event for their support. Photos and a summery of the event will be published in the next few days.

We would also like to thank Quadrangle for kindly providing their facilities and RED for sponsoring the catering at this year’s AGM and Forum.


Upon request we have added a list of books you may find useful in our IQCS shop . Please do let us know if you can recommend other books and material to our members.
