Council is made up of 44 members from different countries and grades of membership. Every year, certain positions on our council become available, so members can stand for these positions. They receive votes from other ICE members.
How does our Council work?
Four times a year the council meets to talk about our future plans and to set our policy (the details of what we are going to do). These meetings cover education, training, qualification and ICE's role as a source of civil engineering knowledge.
The council has an Executive Board, which is chaired by the senior vice president and takes care of more detailed business. It's made up of the president, vice presidents and five elected members.
The council and Executive Board are responsible for running the institution on behalf of our members, but the director general manages our day-to-day affairs.

Meet our council
Our council members are also trustees of the institution. This includes ensuring that ICE is run in the right way (legally and so we meet our Royal Charter objectives). Members serve for three years (while the president is in post for one year) and come from around the world. They range from members who are new to the industry to very experienced and influential civil engineers managing big companies.
