The CIOB and its members will be gathering in Toronto on 9 July for the CIOB AGM along with the Members Forum and the Global Student Challenge (GSC) finals.

Held at the Westin Habour Castle Hotel, Toronto, a key item on the agenda is the installation of the
new CIOB President.

The CIOB’s Members Forum is a unique event, allowing members to influence the direction of the CIOB. The Institute feels this approach improves its understanding of the views, needs and aspirations of its stakeholders.

And for the first time the GSC finals leave Hong Kong to also take place in Toronto. The GSC is the annual student competition which asks full-time construction students to act as a board of directors in regional challenges with winners earning a grand final place.

Hosting the GSC final in the same place as the Members Forum allows finalists to take part in Members Forum activities and network with senior construction professionals from around the world. 

All finalists and their tutors will be flown out to Toronto, with all expenses paid.

The winners receive mentoring from senior construction professionals and a cash prize of £2,000.
