Council Ballot 2024: last chance to stand
ICE Council 2023/24

There's still time to join the ICE Council – the nominations deadline is 29 March 2024.

The 35 elected-member ICE Council debates issues of relevance to civil engineering, the institution and society to understand and recognise the implications of the changing nature of civil engineering to drive the agenda of the ICE’s learned society activity.

The council has an essential role in representing the views of the membership and offering advice to the Trustee Board on how the institution can best deliver value to society and its members.

Members can nominate themselves or a colleague, and each nomination requires at least five sponsors.

Successful members would then serve up to a three-year term of office with effect from 5 November 2024.

There are 11 vacancies to be filled for the upcoming council term. They are:

  • Five general members (comprising Chartered, Incorporated and Technician members), who are elected by the professionally qualified members worldwide and don’t represent any particular constituency;
  • Five regional members – one member to represent each of the following regions: East Midlands, West Midlands, Northern Ireland, North West & South West.
    • Candidates may be Chartered, Incorporated or Technician members and are elected by the professionally qualified members in the relevant regions;
  • One graduate member elected by ICE Graduate members.

The council meets four times a year, both virtually and in person at One Great George Street in London.

Appointing high-calibre people from diverse backgrounds, with relevant skills, knowledge and experience, to the boards and committees of the ICE will help the institution ensure that its work is more effective, resilient and accountable.

For this reason, the ICE positively welcomes applicants from all backgrounds.
