International Task Force to steer Institution

Group will help develop initiatives to build CIBSE’s international membership

A new group has been formed to help steer CIBSE’s international presence and influence. The International Task Force will offer guidance on where to focus efforts internationally; putting in place a formal structure to monitor and manage initiatives that seek to develop and support CIBSE’s membership abroad.

The group includes CIBSE staff and volunteers from across the globe, including the UAE, Singapore and Sri Lanka.

Each individual brings with them a wealth of experience, skill and knowledge of their market and the various CIBSE international processes and structures that are currently in place.

The group, led by Lynne Jack, CIBSE vice-president and professor at Herriot Watt University Malaysia, is keen to help develop CIBSE’s international footprint.

She said: ‘Although everyone is very active in their respective regions, there is real opportunity to work collectively to support membership both in the UK and internationally. Forming this group is a positive step forward in developing CIBSE’s presence across the globe and I look forward to the exciting initiatives ahead.’
