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: yorkshireandthehumber@ciht.org.uk

We would love to hear from you.

Upcoming Events for your diary

With many members working from home we are continuing to put on some events and valuable CPD sessions to keep you all informed. We hope this is appreciated so please keep an eye on the website HERE for how to join or register.

Here is a preview of what we hope to bring to you:

[Exact date TBC] - Pop Up Cycle Lanes presentation – Clare Riley, Sales Manager from Rosehill Highways will present on how they have supported Local Authorities with adapting to pop up cycle lane changes on their network. This will be an online presentation and will let you know dial in details for this in the next newsletter.

Further afield: Online events with Sarah Wilson from Knights Plc – towards the end of the year we will have a number of online seminars from Sarah focusing on NEC contractual issues. Sarah has always supported the region and the seminars are always excellent and well attended. Please do keep an eye out for them.

Do you want to be involved?

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 Seb Reid at yorkshireandthehumber@ciht.org.uk 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 yorkshireandthehumber@ciht.org.uk

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

Best wishes,
Sebastian Reid
Chair for CIHT Yorkshire and the Humber Committee
