New CIBSE officers, Board members and Council members take office each year from the AGM in June. The Board is CIBSE’s governing body, and comprises seven officers – President, president-elect, three vice-presidents, honorary treasurer and immediate past president – plus five Board members.
CIBSE’s by-laws and regulations require that all candidates for officer and Board member vacancies arising at the AGM be considered by the Nominations Panel. All sections of the Institution are invited to suggest candidates for consideration.
The panel seeks to reflect Charity Commission guidance by nominating a range of candidates with the skills and experience required to fulfil the Board’s role as the governing body of a significant registered charity. It also seeks to ensure that the Board includes a balance of representation from different industry sectors. Having considered the advice of the Nominations Panel, the Board then nominates candidates for president-elect and Board member vacancies.
The Board’s nominated candidates for vacancies arising at the AGM in June 2024 are:
President-elect: Vince Arnold CEng FCIBSE
Honorary treasurer: Les Copeland FCIBSE
Members of the Board: Ted Pilbeam IEng FCIBSE and Vincent Ma CEng FCIBSE
The Board also appoints three vice-presidents to take office at the next AGM. These appointments are normally made from those who serve, or have served, on the Board, and all those listed below are current or past officers or Board members.
The Board’s appointments to take office in these roles from the June 2024 AGM are:
Vice-presidents: David Cooper CEng FCIBSE, David Stevens CEng FCIBSE, and Mike Burton CEng FCIBSE.
The Council is a larger consultative body that advises the Board on CIBSE policy. It includes representatives of Regions, Societies, Groups, Networks, Standing Committees, and elected members, who serve a three-year term. Two corporate positions and one non-corporate position are available for election each year. The Board, having considered the advice of the Nominations Panel, nominates the following for vacancies arising at the June 2024 AGM:
Members of Council: Geraldine O’Farrell and Jon Belfield (corp); Jennifer Cox (non-corp).
