Members Events & Benefits


The two regular annual members-only events are

The Annual General Meeting, which is normally held in September at the Art Workers Guild and followed by a dinner. The 2020 meeting was of necessity held as a virtual AGM by Zoom. The 2021 meeting was held at the AWG on Wednesday September 15th, with members adjourning to a local Turkish restaurant afterwards.

    The regular business of the AGM is:

  • the presentation of annual report and accounts and
  • the election of officers, committee and hon auditor, plus
  • any other matters which members or the committee may wish to raise.
  • This year’s proposed arrangements will be published in due course.

    Our Christmas Social is normally held in December in a private room at a public house or wine bar. A formal invite is sent to members and posted in the Members’ area. It could not take place in 2020 but in 2019 the date was Wednesday 18th December, the venue being the Ship and Shovel near Charing Cross.

Forthcoming Members Events & Dates

Following the late notice cancellation of the Christmas Social for 2021 the ICEA is pleased to announce that a Spring Social will take place from 18h30 on Wednesday 6th April 2022. The venue will again be the Ship & Shovell at 1-3 Craven Passage WCN 5PH

An ICEA Summer Outing has been arranged to visit Forman & Field’s salmon processing works in East London. This will be on Wednesday 22nd June 2022.

Both of these events are open to colleagues, friends and family of ICEA members.

Other Members’ Benefits

  • A newsletter that is issued once a year
  • An annual, printed, full membership directory
  • Voluntary listing of contact details and curriculum vitae on the Website

The voluntary listing not only provides fellow members with these details but is also accessible to third parties. Members have found that this listing generates enquiries from potential employers, who are referred to this listing, both by the secretariat and by fellow members. Members who have or learn of posts to be filled may also request the secretariat to circulate fellow members by email with details of these.

There is also a “Members Only” area of the Website “with password access
This is essentially a members’ archive. Notices of members’ events are posted there together with other important documents such as recent newsletters and AGM papers (including annual report and accounts), plus some older material including the Constitution and past Members’ surveys.
