The Oxfordshire branch of the RICS Matrics annual New Members Reception had a fantastic attendance for their inaugural event. Held in the centre of Oxford at All Bar One, a vast array of young surveyors took the opportunity to network and grow their understanding of the industry.
The Matrics provides a voice within the RICS for its student members and also those who have recently graduated. Ridge and Partners and other local practices have been influential in setting up the Oxfordshire branch by forming a committee and planning future events.
The event was a thoroughly enjoyed and as the evening drew into the night, the beginnings of business relationships began to form and it also gave the local branch the opportunity to promote their future events planned for the year.
The events the Oxfordshire branch have lined up for the year is as follows:
- May 2014 BIM Seminar
- July 2014 Barbeque
- September 2014 Get together with the Thames Valley Young Planners
- October 2014 Site Visit
- December 2014 Christmas get together
The May event has already received great reaction as BIM is such a hot topic in the industry. The Oxfordshire branch of the Matrics has tapped into Ridge and Partners in-depth knowledge to provide a speaker for the event.
Details of the BIM event will be released shortly and we look forward to seeing you there.
