CII local institutes - Help shape your institute

It's one thing to be a member of your local institute, but think how much more rewarding it could be to have a hand in running it.

That's the opportunity open to any member - a chance to influence and help shape the local membership proposition. You could also help to influence national policy and discussion.

There are many roles and responsibilities available and our council positions require little commitment, but offer surprisingly big benefits. There is much to discover.

So what are you waiting for? Are you in?

First step - make contact

If you'd like to find out a bit more about joining your local institute council, the first thing to do is to simply register your interest. That way your institute can start a conversation about the opportunities and perhaps arrange a time to meet. Email: providing your contact details and the name of the institute you would like to get involved with and someone will be in touch. 

Meet the team

If you like what you're hearing, attend a council meeting as a guest, meet others involved across the network and find out how it all works. A council meeting is a good way to discover how different people influence the local institute's events and activities, and to find out what level of commitment is involved - often less than you might imagine.

Live the experience

Attend an event - either a social or a technical seminar and find out how local activities are run. This is a good way to get a taste of the local institute's programme - perhaps you'll see ways of improving things?

Make an impact

Start helping to shape things even before your election to the council. You could choose an area that interests you, or in which you've got some useful experience, or even one you know nothing about.

Win the election

Sounds exciting, and it is! Once elected, we will then formally welcome you to the team at the local institute's AGM. The AGM is the official start of your time on council and each role may be re-elected at the end of each presidential year.
