About Us

The South East Region encompasses a wide geographic area ranging from Kent across to Hampshire and the Isle of Wight up to Buckinghamshire. Established in May 2015, following CIHT’s Branch Review and the merging of the former South Eastern, Southern and the Thames and Chilterns Branches, the Region has a membership in excess of 2,000. As a Region, we aim to provide support and networking opportunities for those members through a calendar of technical seminars and conferences, and exciting social events.

Details of all our events can be found on the Events page and CIHT website. Reviews of previous events can also be found in the Past Events section.

If you are interested in any of our upcoming events, have any comments or queries for the Region, please don't hesitate to email us at southeast@ciht.org.uk or get in touch via our LinkedIn group. If you are interested in joining the CIHT itself, please refer to CIHT Membership.


South East Region Committee

The regional committee is made up of a number officers from across the South East, the profiles of which can be found on the Who's Who page. 

The Region, and former Branches, have always been well represented on CIHT’s Council and very much involved with the work of the Council’s Boards.
