As you are aware the CII’s Representative Council was disbanded last year after consultation with the local institute network.
Representative council was a meeting that was held three times a year at the CII’s head office in London. The meeting was attended by 26 local institute representatives who represented each of the local institutes across the UK.
Representative council was replaced by a new group called Local Institute National Forum; with the first meeting held earlier this year. The Local Institute National Forum is now attended by 18 local institute representatives (known as LI Regional Representatives).
These meetings are further supported by local meetings known as Local Institute Regional Forums which will allow YOUR institute to feed into the Local Institute National Forum via a newly created council role known as a Regional Forum Officer.
Your LI Regional Representative should have been in touch to give you the date of your next regional meeting. Topics that will be discussed at the forthcoming meetings include the following:
- Chartered discussion
- Societies discussion
- Maximising local engagement opportunities
If you have any thoughts on these subjects, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with your Regional Forum Officer.
