This article presents updates on the regional members of the British Institute of Management Services as of August 2004. The North West Region board met on Saturday, June 12th at Saint James's Avenue, Bolton. Chairman Len Price opened the meeting at 7.45 pm and items covered included reports from officers together with discussions on future Institute policy as outlined at our previous board meeting and as published in the May and June 2004 Journals. At the Region meeting held on April 17th David Blanchflower, Council Delegate to the North West Region and also Institute Deputy Chairman and Treasurer had outlined proposed radical changes to ensure the continued survival of the Institute. Meanwhile, the West Midlands Region had been considering for some years now how it could find out more about the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. Finally on a Saturday in April a group of West Midland Members met with Marigold, our Official Blue Badge Guide and set off on a walking tour of the area. The Quarter was originally developed as a fashionable suburb of Birmingham, but when the canal arrived in the late 1700s the well-off residents moved out. The houses were converted into metal workshops. The walking part of the tour ended at the Pen Museum, when we were introduced to Brian Jones who gave us an introduction to another side of the Quarter, the production of pen nibs.
