About our Section

The Scottish Section's event calendar provides a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities that take place across Scotland. Our events cover a number of specialisms and we like to vary the format by including paper evenings, showcase events, technical talks and social and networking events in our programme.  Our regular events include a dinner dance in September, Burns’ night dinner in January and charity quiz in March.

New committee members are always welcome. We meet bi-monthly in person and/or via teleconference. Please send an email to the above address if you're interested.


The current Chair of our Scottish Section is David McLeod. David is a Chartered Engineer with IGEM and has an MSc with Distinction in Gas Engineering and Management from the University of Salford and a first class degree in construction (Project) Management from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. 

In October 2018 he joined ULC Robotics as Head of Business Development. In this role, he is responsible for future business development opportunities across a large spectrum of industries, including Gas. David has an outstanding track record for applying his engineering knowledge to industry problems and managing and implementing innovative solutions to enhance company performance.

He has been extremely active within IGEM since joining in 2009 and has been involved in the development of IGEM's Young Persons Network (YPN) committee.

"I have been an active member of IGEM since joining the gas industry in 2009 and have reaped the benefits of my professional development. As Chair, I seek to ensure others benefit from their membership, develop the Scottish Section Committee, organise high profile Section events and continue to form relationships and links with other professional organisations and academia."
