ICE Council

ICE Council 2019

The Trustees are supported by a Council, which approves the Trustee Board members and are themselves directly elected by the members.

How does our Council work?

The Council has an essential role in representing the views of the membership to the Trustee Board. It also debates issues of relevance to civil engineering, the Institution and society, to understand and recognise the implications of the changing nature of civil engineering and to support the Trustees in ensuring ICE is considered a global centre of excellence championing the role civil engineering plays at the heart of society.

If you’re an ICE member, you can access summaries of Council meetings.
