During the COVID-19 pandemic, IEMA has encouraged more digital activity in order to help members engage with regional activities, and since the end of April the IEMA Regional Volunteer Network has hosted 19 online sessions.

These have been well received, which is encouraging at a time when supporting and connecting members has never been more important.

Many regions are continuing to develop new ways of hosting events digitally, as well as holding successful coffee mornings, webinars and virtual tours. It has been overwhelming to see how much time and work has gone into this period and the events themselves. Having regional activity opened out to a wider audience, especially to members in more remote areas, has been invaluable.

We will be continuing to develop our digital engagement activity after restrictions have eased so that they become a regular feature. If you would like to watch past events again, they can be found on the IEMA website.

If you have any ideas for topics or themes for future regional events, please get in touch at
