North East Committee

Join the North East Committee

We are looking for individuals to join the North East Region Committee. Chaired by Philip Oliver from Kyoob, the Committee have events planned over the next few months but are looking for new members to help develop their events programme and engage more members across the region.

Joining a CIBSE committee can be very rewarding and is good for developing skills, it also provides great networking opportunities. As well the chance to contribute to the region and the industry, committee work counts as CPD. A key task is coordinating and scheduling the programme of events. In addition, committee members are expected to attend some of the events and meetings occasionally as needed before or after a planned event. 

With more Committee Members we can reach out to the wider community and increase networking and a range of other benefits to the members in the region. 

If you would be interested in finding out more about joining the North East Region Committee please contact Philip Oliver at
