Institute Governance

We are governed by a Royal Charter and registered as a charity in England, Wales and Scotland. Because of this, we are bound to operate in a way that is transparent and inclusive.

How we are Governed

Because we are governed by a Royal Charter, and registered as a charity in England, Wales and Scotland, we are bound to operate in a way that is transparent and inclusive. Our Board of Trustees, made up of Fellows and Chartered Members, are responsible for the management of the Institute. They make sure that our finances are sound and that things are being done according to the regulations related to charities and the Royal Charter.

Our Chief Executive reports to this Board. Our members safeguard the present and lead the future direction of the CIOB. Trustees, who volunteer their time, are supported by various governance committees and the CIOB Management Board.

We also have a Members’ Forum which we use as a consultative body; this Forum brings together leading construction professionals from across the globe to represent the interests of all members. All of this means that our members safeguard the present and lead the future direction of the CIOB.

Corporate Plan 2023-28

Our Corporate Plan starts with what matters most to the users and creators of the built environment and how we help the construction industry respond. The plan has been shaped by our Trustees and members across the globe to deliver upon our public benefit remit. It is our roadmap to 2028. 

Driving us forward is our aim to make modern professionalism in construction management widely aspired to and increasingly a reality across the industry.
The plan focuses activity in three areas: Environmental Sustainability, Quality and Safety and Skills Gaps.
