Are You Making the Most of your Industrial Membership?

Tue, 12 April, 2022

TWI is a membership-based organisation, supporting individuals through Professional Membership and businesses through Industrial Membership.

Our Industrial Members know that we offer authoritative and impartial expert advice, knowhow and safety assurance through engineering, materials and joining technologies to help design, create and operate better, safer products.

However, there may be some additional benefits included in your Industrial Membership that you are not yet taking advantage of.

Here are four Industrial Membership benefits that you may not have used yet:

  1. TWI Technical Enquiry Service: We work on large and small projects alongside our Industrial Members, offering technical advice and business guidance, but you don’t need to be involved in an ongoing project with us to take advantage of our expertise. Industrial Members are welcome to use our technical enquiry service to get answers via email, telephone or through our website.
  2. Library and Information Services: TWI holds a wealth of information that can be accessed by our Members. This includes online information resources such as our knowledge summaries, FAQs, best practice guides and the WeldasearchTM In addition, your membership allows you to access published papers from TWI experts and full reports from our core research programme projects. We also hold a library catalogue of many physical items, including rare and out of print books that we can access for you. You can find out more about these information services here.
  3. Free Professional Membership: As an Industrial Member, you are entitled to free one-year AWeldI professional memberships to The Welding Institute, the leading engineering institution supporting welding and joining professionals with welding, joining and allied technologies. Membership of The Welding Institute will help your staff develop their knowledge and skills through their Continuing Professional Development (CPD), while being able to network with other Professional Members. In addition, The Institute holds special Technical Group webinars and events for Members, where speakers with specialised and diverse experience and backgrounds share their knowledge of subjects including welding practice, welding technology, metals and non-metals, other joining technologies, surface treatments, inspection, non-destructive test, integrity assessment and integrity management across all industries, from micro-electronics to heavy industry. You can find out more about this free benefit here.
  4. Dedicated Technical Webinars: As well as the events available to you through your free Professional Memberships (see above), we also hold dedicated technical webinars and events for our Industrial Members throughout the year. These allow you to gain knowledge directly from our expert speakers as well as interact and ask questions on a range of subjects. You can see details of all of our upcoming events here or contact us if you would like webinars specifically tailored to your company’s needs.

Industrial Membership opens up a range of benefits for your business and staff, so make sure to make the most of your membership and take advantage of Professional Membership, our information services, technical enquiry services, and dedicated technical events.
