We make a significant contribution to the work of the Yorkshire & Humber Infrastructure Alliance.
Andy Burton would like to extend his thanks to The Region for his time as chairman over the past two years. You can read Andy's thank you speech below:
CIHT Yorkshire & the Humber has had a key role in creating the Yorkshire & Humber Infrastructure Alliance which represents 80% of the industry in the region and brings together professional and learned bodies to maximise the impact of both infrastructure spending and the devolution of powers. The Alliance, which includes the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), has produced a Transport Manifesto which addresses the need to improve poor transport connectivity within the Region and to national networks, as well as to improve the resilience of our transport infrastructure, and suggests ways to overcome the dire skills shortage we face. We continue to work alongside other Institutions such as the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Transport Planning Society in the planning and marketing of our events in order to support mutual aims

We are keen to promote the profession to young people considering their future careers. To that end we have featured three of our young professionals in film clips talking about their jobs in Highways & Transportation. We are happy to support potential candidates for the Institution’s professional qualifications through mentoring and practical advice. Please contact us on e: firstname.lastname@example.org if you want assistance.
In addition to our general programme of events, we celebrate achievement in the Region through the presentation of our ‘Best Highways & Transportation Project’, ‘Young Professional of the Year’ and 'Apprentice of the Year' awards at our Annual Awards & Dinner Dance.
We have an active Young Professionals Committee which plans a range of technical and social events aimed at colleagues at the start of their careers. Social aspects include a 5-a-side football tournament, 10-pin bowling and pub quizzes. If you want to get involved please get in touch.
