On Wednesday 20th May 2015 the Greater London Branch became CIHT London. CIHT London membership includes the entire Greater London area. CIHT members can choose which Region to register with. CIHT London has many members working or visiting the capital who are resident outside London but who find it convenient to attend afternoon and early evening in Central London.
As Chair of the London region, I wanted to send a message to all local Highways & Transport professionals to encourage you to maintain and use your association with CIHT to help you through the difficult time that we are all experiencing at the moment. Whether you are working from home or currently furloughed, it’s really important that you stay connected and keep up to speed with what’s going on in the sector and your local area so that you can carry on with your career development post-Covid 19.
You may have noticed that CIHT is offering more CPD webinars which will keep you informed and support your professional development such as online seminars and podcasts. We are providing regular updates on the state of the sector and up the minute news on our website which is transport specific.
For those who have yet to re-new their membership this year, I understand that paying your membership subscription may not be a priority, or may be financially difficult right now, but CIHT is committed to supporting everyone in the sector through this time. How? Firstly, by waiving the reinstatement fee and secondly by having conversations with members about payment options and taking advantage of the concessionary subscription rate. The membership team (firstname.lastname@example.org) would be pleased to hear from you.
Remember, CIHT is your membership body and it is here to help you.
As many of our meetings as possible are held on Wednesdays and all are held at locations close to public transport links. Members from other regions and guests are welcome to attend. Most CIHT London events are free and it is helpful if you reserve a place. This allows us to book a room of a suitable size and arrange refreshments. Some venues have limited capacity so it is essential to book a place to avoid the risk of being turned away.
CIHT London hosts influential Seminars. These tend to run from 14.00 - 17.00 at Imperial College, Room 201 (first floor) of the Civil Engineering building. This is located on the north side of Imperial College Road, and can be reached from the northern most exit of the pedestrian tunnel from South Kensington Station. Seminars sometimes require a fee which is currently £60.
Our standard means of contacting members is by email plus a Newsletter with updates. A programme of events is published twice a year and sent to members and uploaded on the Region's web page. Please check the events calendar for the location and start time of each meeting. We are always on the lookout for new places to hold events and seminars. If your company is based in London and is interested in hosting an event please contact us via e: email@example.com. If any member of a neighbouring Region wants to receive our programme, please update your preferences via MyCIHT.
