Get involved - join the Committee
Do you want to help shape the direction of the North East & Cumbria Region? As we build our programme of events and activities, we're looking for enthusiastic people brimming with fresh ideas, to join our Committee. It's a great opportunity to meet people outside of your organisation, and volunteer your skills to the wider profession. You could even get involved with national CIHT initiatives, and your time counts towards your continuing professional development (CPD).
Please get in touch if interested or would like to know more.
"An Introduction to...." and Events Programme 2018
In association with the Transport Planning Society, CIHT North East & Cumbria launched An Introduction to... in summer 2017. A series of 'bite size' technical seminars, they are aimed at those progressing a professional accredited qualification, on a structured training programme, or to simply act as a refresher in a certain knowledge area.
Held throughout the year, the programme will follow the core technical competencies associated with CEng, IEng, EngTech, TPP and the TPS Professional Development Scheme (PDS).
Please see our Events page for details of the lastest seminars in the series, and all other events and activities planned over the next few months. This is updated frequently with upcoming events promoted through our regular mailshots. 
The North East & Cumbria  - Our History
Our Region was formed in 2015, with the merging of the North Eastern and Northern Branches. Some of the content from each Branch is archived and accessible on this website, including the Diamond Jubilee e-book, produced in 2012 for the North Eastern Branch's 60th anniversary.
