We have over 750 members in the Region. Our focus is on building on the professional standing of our members and forging collaborative working practices. CIHT Yorkshire & the Humber includes: City of Kingston upon Hull; East Ridings of Yorkshire; North East Lincolnshire; North Lincolnshire; North Yorkshire; South Yorkshire; West Yorkshire and York. We make a significant contribution to the work of the Yorkshire & Humber Infrastructure Alliance.
The Yorkshire & the Humber committee held their 2021 Annual General Meeting on 14th April 2021.
Whilst the majority of roles on the committee were filled for the 2021-22 year, there is still an officer role available on the committee, which is:
Programme / Events Coordinator (1 vacancy): This role includes working with the Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary to prepare a 12 month programme of technical and social events, supporting with coordination of committee meetings, regional events and member mail outs, supporting the Honorary Treasurer with finances related to regional events and working with the Web/Communications Officer to ensure events are promoted via CIHT's channels e.g. website, emails and social media.
We are happy to discuss the committee role and answer any questions you might have.
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.
If you would like to put yourself forward for this role or discuss it further, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would love to hear from you.

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.
