International Chapters

There are CIBSE International Chapters in:

These Chapters are generally headed up by a small committee of volunteers who are keen to represent the Institution and arrange CIBSE events where possible.

The objective of any Chapter is to promote CIBSE membership and products, establish communication networks between members in the vicinity, organise events, host visits from CIBSE colleagues, forge links with local bodies and institution, maintain regular contact with HQ and provide valuable feedback and input on international issues as appropriate, and generally to encourage movement towards the conditions for establishment of a Region in their area.

Forming a new International Chapter

CIBSE wishes to encourage local initiatives internationally that will lead to membership growth and eventually to the establishment of a CIBSE Region. 

The CIBSE Board have set some minimum requirements to start a new Chapter:

  • Minimum of 4-5 members on the committee, of which at least 3 hold corporate membership.

  • The committee is recommended to establish the following roles: Chair, Membership Champion, Industry Liaison Officer, & Events Coordinator.

  • The Chair or Vice Chair of the committee must hold corporate membership.

  • Minimum of 15-20 members residing in the country.

If you are interested in finding out more on how to start a new CIBSE International Chapter, please read the Guidance for the Formation of International Chapters and then contact for further information.

The creation and approval of any new chapter will be made by the Institution’s Board. The Board will consider the proposal made by the local group for the establishment of a Chapter.
