Committees

ICES members cover a wide range of specialisms within construction commercial management and geospatial engineering. Members are encouraged to take part in the future development of the institution and there are various committees and working groups established to provide a forum where you can meet to discuss and promote civil engineering surveying.

The organisational structure of Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) shows how each of the committees and working groups relate to the institution. The working groups and committees generally fall under five core committees:

Council of Management

The Council of Management determines the overall direction and policy of the institution. It is composed of the president, vice presidents and 15 members, all of whom are directors and trustees of ICES. The council is responsible for the administration of the institution’s core committees and panels.

The CMPC represents the interests of those studying and employed within the field of construction commercial management and promotes standards of excellence within the profession. The CMPC works in collaboration with other professional bodies and has a joint Commercial Management Board with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). The CMPC acts as parent to several panels and working groups.

Geospatial Engineering Practices
