Alongside voting for new members of Council and the Trustee Board, Members will also be asked to vote on a number of changes to the ICE’s Royal Charter and By-Laws. The changes are proposed by the Trustee Board and Council and cover a number of areas.

Members will be asked to vote on Resolutions about the introduction of the protected title of Chartered Infrastructure Engineer; changes to the voting rights of both Technician and Graduate members; and changes to the language used in the By-laws to reflect best practice. Further information on the proposed changes is available from the Governance Updates section of the ICE website.
