What are Communities?

Our Communities bring engineers and technicians together, either online or face to face.

They cover many areas of the world and a wide range of technical disciplines.

This short film explains what Communities are and how you can get involved.

The Communities Committee South Asia (CCSA)

The CCSA was set up to support regional activities, driving communication between communities and sharing best practice methods. The CCSA also advises the Communities Resourcing Committee on how a resource should be allocated and helps communities keep track of and meet their KPIs.

Whether they’re geographical, technical or age-focused, the CCSA supports all our communities.
