East Midlands

Welcome to CIHT East Midlands

On Tuesday 27th April 2015 the Midland Branch became CIHT East Midlands including the following English counties: Derbyshire; Leicestershire; Nottinghamshire; Lincolnshire and Rutland. We are an active and friendly Region with well attended and varied meetings on a large range of highways and transportation related topics, plus social networking events such as the Annual Dinner Dance and quiz nights. The East Midlands recognises excellence and innovation within the Region through its Annual Awards. 

Note from the Chair 

As Chair of the CIHT East Midlands 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 (membership@ciht.org.uk) would be pleased to hear from you.

Remember, CIHT is your membership body and it is here to help you.

Dr Behzad Rahimzadeh, Chair of CIHT East Midlands
