Special Interest Groups

CIBSE's Special Interest Groups encompass topics that cut across our building services engineering disciplines to provide up-to-date information and resources.

Each group offers a programme of events each year from which you can participate to fulfil your CPD, as well as communicate with their members about the relevant policy and guidance updates for their chosen area of interest. 

Our specialist interest groups are run by committees; teams of volunteers that are elected annually at each group's Annual General Meeting. Group members wishing to become a part of the committee can put their name forward for election when the date is announced to the group. The group chairs sit on the CIBSE Council.

Committees can co-opt members at any point throughout the year. Elected members of group committees do not need to be CIBSE members; they just need to be members of the Specialist Interest Group. Officer roles (excluding Vice-Chair) do have membership requirements for election. You can find out more about the requirements in the Groups Manual.

You can join a group by visiting and updating your specialist interest groups communications.

You can email [email protected] with any questions.
