Council Election 2019

Published: 07/01/2019

Nominations are sought for candidates for election as Vice-President 2020-21 and Ordinary member of Council 2020-22.  

Information about the role and operation of the Council may be found at:

The electoral regions in the UK and the Republic of Ireland are based on Institution Regional Groups – a map of which can be accessed from the website at:

The regions are: 

  1. Lancashire and Cheshire
  2. Scottish, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland
  3. Yorkshire and Northern Counties
  4. Bedfordshire and Adjoining Counties, East Anglia and East Midlands
  5. Midland Counties and Wales
  6. Devon and Cornwall, Western Counties and Southern
  7. Thames Valley and Surrey
  8. North Thames
  9. South Eastern Counties
  10. Rest of Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Americas
  11. Hong Kong
  12. Asia and Pacific 

The minimum number of ordinary members (continuing in office in 2020 and to be elected) from any electoral region is one (apart from region 11, where because of the size of the electorate, it is two). To fulfil this requirement, at least one ordinary member of Council from Region 2 must be elected. 

Chartered and Incorporated Structural Engineers and Technician Members (who have submitted a current Institution Continuing Professional Development return) are invited to consider standing for election as an ordinary member of the Council 2020-22. Fellows (who have previously served on Council and who have submitted a current Institution Continuing Professional Development Return) are invited to consider standing for election as a Vice-President 2020-21. Nomination papers (which must be completed by the candidate and ten other Voting Members) are obtainable from Dr S M Doran and must be submitted by Monday 11 February 2019. Candidates must also complete a candidate information form and supply a photograph. Completed nomination documents can be returned by e-mail to or by post. 

In due course, voting documents will be issued and you will be able to vote either electronically or by post. The results will subsequently be published in The Structural Engineer, in the e-newsletter and on the website.
