CIOB Community

Influencers and leaders needed for Trustee posts

9 November 2018

You belong to the largest construction management community in the world, formed, shaped and led by members since the CIOB began back in 1834. Now is your opportunity to help set the future trends of the industry.

If you are an MCIOB or FCIOB member and want to help the CIOB grow its influence on the big issues and drive forward the corporate plan, then a Trustee position could be the platform for you. The CIOB vision is for every member to have a consistent and valuable experience no matter where they are located, and to support the industry with benchmark-setting learning and knowledge through the CIOB Academy.

With some trustees now reaching the end of their three-year term, the search is on for a new crop of strategic thinkers and influencers who can join the Board and carry on the work of their predecessors. A trustee term is for three years and past and present trustees say that it was a unique and rewarding experience working alongside inspirational colleagues from a variety of backgrounds. The role is about making tough and challenging decisions that not only benefit the CIOB but the wider construction sector.

In June 2019, three (3) Trustees will step down and the CIOB is recruiting to fill these positions. Two (2) of these vacancies will be elected to the Board of Trustees through a ballot of members; the remaining trustee will be selected by the Board.

The application process begins on 19 November 2018 and closes on 11 January 2019.  The application portal and the election process will be run through a trusted third party supplier, Mi-Voice.

To find out more about the role of a trustee visit or ask Samantha Teague, associate director – governance/institute secretary at All enquiries are treated in strictest confidence.
