Welcome to the RCEA(Sussex)

An Association for Retired Professional Engineers

President George Woollard

I extend a warm welcome to the RCEA Web Site. We are an Association based in Sussex for all retired Professional Engineers who wish to keep abreast of engineering developments.  We meet on the Second Tuesday of each month from September until April at Field Place in Worthing for talks by external speakers of a technical nature on various engineering topics, this is followed by a Q and A session along with refreshments.  During the summer months visits and outings, both technical and social, are also on offer along with coffee mornings with and without partners.  New members are always welcome and if you feel this is something you would like to get involved in, have a look at the Archive section of this Web Site and peruse the past Newsletters.  For more information on our Association, please contact the Membership Secretary at the address below: info.rceaworthing@gmail.co
