CIHT Cymru Wales includes all of the counties within the devolved administration of Wales. On Tuesday 28th April 2015 North Wales and the South Wales Branches merged to become CIHT Cymru Wales. We play a significant role in providing advice to the Welsh Government on Highways and Transportation matters through the consultation process.
The CIHT Cymru Wales Committee provides networking opportunities with a calendar of events covering industry hot topics. These technical events offer excellent opportunities to extend your experience and knowledge and gain CPD certificates. Technical talks are held at least once a month from September through to April in North Wales and throughout the year in Cardiff.
As Chair of the CIHT Cymru Wales region, I wanted to send a message to all local Highways & Transport professionals to encourage you to maintain and use your association with CIHT to help you through the difficult time that we are all experiencing at the moment. Whether you are working from home or currently furloughed, it’s really important that you stay connected and keep up to speed with what’s going on in the sector and your local area so that you can carry on with your career development post-Covid 19.
You may have noticed that CIHT is offering more CPD webinars which will keep you informed and support your professional development. We are providing regular updates on the state of the sector and up the minute news on our website which is transport specific.
For those who have yet to re-new their membership this year, I understand that paying your membership subscription may not be a priority, or may be financially difficult right now, but CIHT is committed to supporting everyone in the sector through this time. How? Firstly, by waiving the reinstatement fee and secondly by having conversations with members about payment options and taking advantage of the concessionary subscription rate. The membership team (firstname.lastname@example.org) would be pleased to hear from you.
Remember, CIHT is your membership body and it is here to help you.
The Cymru Wales Annual Awards Dinner will take place on 29 November 2019 at The Kinmel Manor Hotel.

We have an enthusiastic CIHT Cymru Wales Young Professionals Committee made up of young professionals in the Highways & Transportation industry. This committee organises social and technical events and has excellent industry contacts to aid emerging professionals with their development. The committee's aims include: To act as a voice for younger members; promote the Institution as a professional body: assist young transport planners and engineers; promote the benefits of joining CIHT and to provide opportunities for networking with fellow young professionals. The committee meets once every two to three months and organises a range of events throughout the year.
The CIHT Cymru Wales calendar also includes exciting social events for our members such as the Cymru Wales Awards & Dinner in North Wales in November each year. The Annual Dinner is held in Cardiff in March each year.
Whether you are just starting out in your career in highways and transportation or you are an experienced professional, CIHT Cymru Wales can help support your professional development needs.
