CIHT North East & Cumbria was formed in 2015, with the merging of the North Eastern and Northern Branches. The Region covers the following local authority and metropolitan areas: Northumberland; Tyne & Wear; County Durham; Darlington; Hartlepool; Middlesbrough; Stockton-On-Tees; Redcar & Cleveland; Carlisle; Allerdale; Copeland; South Lakeland and Barrow-in-Furness. We are committed to helping shape the direction of the North East & Cumbria Region through our collaborative partnerships and actively engaged members.
We are giving notice that the CIHT North East & Cumbria Annual General Meeting will be held on 12 May 2022, 5:30pm – 6:45pm.
The AGM offers us an opportunity to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next. The AGM will be held virtually. Details of how to book your place will be announced shortly via the North East & Cumbria events webpage.
All CIHT members are welcome to join the AGM. The AGM is an open meeting for all CIHT members in the region to learn about the committee’s activity and to give members an opportunity to join their relevant committee.
There are lots of benefits of getting involved; CIHT’s regions and nations play a critical role for the Institution, acting as a focal point for members to meet and share their experiences locally. The regions and nations organise an annual programme of activities, which include CPD opportunities, seminars, site visits and social events.
The CIHT North East & Cumbria Annual General Meeting was held on 13th May 2021.
Whilst the majority of roles on the committee were filled for the 2021-22 year, we welcome new committee members at any time.
If you would like to discuss joining the committee, we are happy to answer any questions you might have and you can contact us at: email@example.com
