Represent your profession locally
What does being on a Hub Committee entail?
Representing our profession in your local area is both a responsibility and a rewarding opportunity. It will help you develop your local networks and most importantly, expand your knowledge and expertise by giving something back to your fellow construction professionals. To lead these hubs we look for Chartered members who care about helping others in their area, that have a strong sense for the issues and topics that members need to know about and that can help us showcase professionalism in the industry. In return you will get a unique platform to raise your own profile and inspire others.

FAQs about Committee Hub Recruitment
Committees meet four times per year, and you may not need to travel as meetings can take place by conference call or Skype. In between meetings, we need you to help develop 12 month plans that support our corporate vision at a local level, come up with ideas for events, venues and sponsors and offer your advice and knowledge of construction issues in your area.
You need to be either a Chartered Member (either MCIOB or FCIOB) to apply for a role. The CIOB wants people to take part who care about helping other members in their area and have a strong sense for the issues that professionals need to know about.
