Voting is now open for the Council Elections and the Governance Ballot. We urge you to have your say.

Why should I vote?

ICE Council is made up of our members and helps to direct the strategic lifelong learning and engineering knowledge of the Institution. The Council Elections are your opportunity to choose the right people for our Council.

We will need visionary thinkers to help us achieve our long-term ambitions that benefit society. Read what the candidates have to say about what they believe ICE should focus on and how they could make a difference.

In addition to the usual Council elections, members will also be asked to approve a number of changes to the by-laws which have been recommended by the ICE Trustee Board, in line with the recommendations of the Presidential Commission into ICE Governance.

Members will be asked to vote on resolutions about: the balance of the Trustee Board and the method of appointing and electing its members; the provision for the Trustee Board to dismiss a Trustee for justifiable reasons; and changes to the rules for attendance and voting at a Special General Meeting.

The proposed changes would allow the membership to retain control of the direction of the Institution via a robust and transparent election process by directly electing four members of the Trustee Board.

How to vote

All members who are eligible to vote should have received details on how to vote via email or will in the coming days receive their voting pack in the post.

If you’re registered with MyICE, these were emailed to you from ice@cesvotes.com. If you are not registered with a valid email address, or if you have opted out of voting online, the ballot papers were sent to you by post.

ICE has chosen to use Civica Election Services (CES), formerly known as Electoral Reform Services (ERS), as the independent scrutineer to administer the vote and to ensure the integrity of the ballot.

If you haven’t received your ballot email / postal pack or have any questions about how to vote, please contact support@cesvotes.com or governance@ice.org.uk.

More information

Voting is open until 14 July 2020.
