In 2015 CIHT’s 18 UK Branches were restructured to 12 Regions & Nations to match the boundaries of the Devolved Nations and the English Regions. On Tuesday 5th May 2015 the Central and Southern Scotland and the North of Scotland Branches merged to become CIHT Scotland. CIHT Scotland exists to support you in your career development, to highlight and share best practice in transport planning and engineering in Scotland and to offer networking opportunities.
As Chair of the CIHT Scotland 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. 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.
With over 1200 members located across Scotland, CIHT Scotland is keen to support professionals pursuing qualifications such as Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer and Transport Planning Professional status.
The SPF is part of CIHT Scotland and sits under the auspices of the CIHT Learned Society & Technical Board. As a member-led initiative, SPF stemming from the time of devolved government in Scotland. Its central purpose is to represent CIHT members in Scotland in an appropriate way and to convey professional advice and opinion to elected bodies and society at large in a way that is relevant to the specific geography, characteristics and governance of the transport network in Scotland. SPF ensures that relevant transport technical and policy issues are brought to the attention of CIHT members across Scotland and endeavours to produce timely responses to the Scottish Government on public consultations.
