Knowledge Management Committee Member

21 Jan 24

The Knowledge Management Committee (KMC) is a Standing Committee of the Board responsible for implementing the knowledge strategy of the Institution.

KMC is responsible for the development and maintenance of CIBSE knowledge and for management and financial control of the delivery and peer review process. It is responsible for measuring and assessing the value and impacts of CIBSE Knowledge outputs on all subjects and in all formats. KMC is also responsible for managing the CIBSE Research Fund and for engaging a broader cross-section of CIBSE’s global membership in knowledge delivery.

The functions of KMC are supported and informed by the Knowledge Generation Panel (KGP).

Committee Constitution

Committee members should represent a range of age, gender, background, experience and expertise, and include participation from different sectors and specialisms involved in the performance of buildings throughout their whole lifecycle.

  • KMC comprises up to 9 members. Additional members may be co-opted to support specific projects. 
  • Members are appointed for a three year period. At the end of this period they may be reappointed for a further three year period, however, a balance between retaining expertise and bringing in fresh ideas is sought.

  • The Board is also responsible for appointing members of KMC but may delegate this responsibility to the Committee itself.
