CIBSE’s Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) is seeking additional volunteers to ensure its Code of Conduct is fit for the future, writes PCC chair Doug King.
The PCC is tasked with maintaining the code and administering CIBSE’s disciplinary procedures.
As recent Journal articles have highlighted, new regulations on competence will require members of the Institution to demonstrate that they have appropriate ‘skills, knowledge, experience and behaviour’ – issues that are already at the heart of the Code of Conduct.
The PCC meets three times a year, but additional work may be required from time to time, including implementing disciplinary procedures.
Membership is open to CIBSE members of any grade. However, some experience of dealing with disputes or contractual issues – as well as an interest in ethics – would be beneficial.
We particularly welcome expressions of interest from those who can bring experience or knowledge of groups or sectors that are traditionally under-represented in the professional engineering institutions.
Send your CV and a short statement explaining your interest in professionalism in the construction industry to Laura Webb, director of membership, standards and networks, at firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 January 2022.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited to a short online interview.
