ICE East of England

Committees

ICE East of England's various committees and panels bring together like-minded people and give members the opportunity to increase their knowledge, get advice, and raise the profile and standard of civil engineering.

Regional committees and branches

The region is made up of the Regional Executive Board and Regional Branch Committees.

Committee members are volunteers and come from a range of backgrounds within the civil engineering profession.

Find out more about the committees and groups, including who's involved and how you can get in touch.

The ICE East of England Regional Committee manages ICE affairs in the East of England.

The committee is made up of the chairmen of the various branches, special interest groups, regional members of council, and representatives on national boards and panels. All members of the board are volunteers and are unpaid for their work with ICE. The chair, honorary secretary and honorary treasurer are appointed at the East of England Region Annual General Meeting, which usually takes place in October.

It works in partnership with the Regional Support Team (RST), which is staffed by a regional director and regional coordinator.

The board, through its county branches and the RST, organises events for ICE members in the East of England.
