An important part of running a Local Network is to ensure that more people become aware of the IET and that they see a professional and credible organisation.
On this page we provide information and resources on how to grow your community through the use of PR and communications whilst ensuring that your Local Network is an identifiable part of the IET.
If you need to create marketing material like posters you can use our Marketing Toolkit. This creates on brand material automatically so you don’t even need to know our branding guidelines.
Also available on the Toolkit are promotional items which can be used at your LN events to create a great IET presence. We have created a briefing to give details on what there is available to order.
If you are running an event and would like to provide a professional and on brand welcome to delegates then please use this downloadable holding slide.
One of the questions we are sometimes asked by volunteers is whether we can get an article in the E&T Magazine. It should be noted, however, that the E&T Magazine has an independent editorial policy and therefore staff are limited by what they can request. However we are always looking for content for Member News (both printed and online) so if you have a great story to tell about your Local Network activities then get in touch. By getting an article in Member News you will raise awareness of your work to many of the 160,000 IET Members throughout the world.
Richard Tregaskes, Secretary of the Southern California LN talked to us about the benefits of creating a communications matrix. This includes forward planning emails to coincide with speakers, topics and technical visits for the year ahead. Read about his experiences and how your LN could benefit from implementing a communications plan.
