Do you want to be involved?

With the AGM fast approaching, do you want to be involved in the Yorkshire and Humber CIHT Committee?

We are always looking for new members from the region to support us. It’s not a full time role, is voluntary and you would be able to help increase membership, provide advocacy for CIHT, organise events, connect with other professionals and let’s be honest, it will look great on your CV too!

We like to have good representation from across the industry so no matter what sector you are in we would love to hear from you!

Please contact James or Seb at if you are interested.

The CIHT Region is here for you:

We all know that at the moment times are tough for many colleagues in the industry; whether it is those on furlough or sadly those who have been a victim of the current financial impact due to COVID-19.  If you would like to talk to anyone on the committee during this time about what CIHT can offer CPD wise, membership queries or how you can continue to keep in touch with the industry, please feel free to contact

Even if you just want a friendly chat with one of team we would be more than willing to listen.

Best wishes,
James Leeming
Chair for CIHT Yorkshire and the Humber Committee
