These escalator dues  will be offered to all SMPTE student  members  who  graduated this year offering over a 50% discount on first year dues-   about £43 (rather than £89) , 
and 25% discount for the second year .

SMPTE UK section is also providing support and advice to graduates as they establish their careers - with a group of six members from the main industry sectors  who are from zero to 15 years of graduating as well as  by senior members of  the SMPTE UK section.

Peter Weitzel Hon sec SMPTE UK said “Two years ago when the UK section was reformed – the founding managers were very keen ensuring that we served those starting to work in our industries.  We now have a very tangible means of doing this – but what is more important is for those established   to meet speak and listen to those who are starting out. (Hear SMPTE Past President Wendy Alysworth)

 SMPTE meetings are the ideal forum for anyone from any area to find out what is happening –through   networking over ample refreshments as well hearing the excellent speakers and discussion”.  

“Here is our opportunity to show that SMPTE and its UK members is doing
something for the future of our industries “
