ICE East of England

Committees

ICE East of England's various committees and panels bring together like-minded people and give members the opportunity to increase their knowledge, get advice, and raise the profile and standard of civil engineering.

Regional committees and branches

The region is made up of the Regional Executive Board and Regional Branch Committees.

Committee members are volunteers and come from a range of backgrounds within the civil engineering profession.

The ICE East of England Regional Executive Board manages ICE affairs in the East of England.
