The ICME National Awards aim to ‘honour all those who have worked tirelessly for the benefit of the industry as well as those that have supported the Institute in various ways over many years.’ Early career professionals, apprentices and students are also awarded for ‘passion & commitment’ to the cast metals, foundry and patternmaking industry.
The ICME Awards & Fellows Lunch took place in June 2023 at the British Motor Museum, Warwick.
