Information about the role and operation of the Council can be found here.
The electoral regions in the UK and the Republic of Ireland are based on Institution Regional Groups.
The electoral 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 2021 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 two ordinary members of Council from Region 11 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 2021-23.
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 2021-22. Further information and nomination papers (which must be completed by the candidate and supported by ten other Voting Members) are obtainable from Dr Kristy MacDonald.
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 newsletter and on the website.
The deadline for nominations is Monday 10 February 2020 at 12:00 PM GMT.
