Committees

ICE South West's regional committee, GSA committees and city clubs in the region plan and organise how we support and share knowledge with ICE members.

Regional committees and branches

ICE's work in the South West is carried out by the regional committee. It's made up of representatives throughout the region, City Club members and Graduates, Students and Apprentices committee members, and is supported by the Regional Support Team.

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

Find out more about the committees and groups, including who's involved and how you can get in touch.

The ICE South West Regional Committee is made up of more than 30 members. It works with the Regional Support Team to reflects ICE's overall aims and priorities and represents ICE members in the region.
