The Civil Engineers' Club
Institution of Civil Engineers


The objectives of the Club are:-

To be “at the heart of society, delivering sustainable development through knowledge, skills and professional expertise” by

  1. Enhancing the image of the Civil Engineer through the organization of major events
  2. Promoting social and sporting activities amongst Civil Engineers and their families
  3. Giving members of the Institution the opportunity for maintaining friendships established during their professional life.

The Civil Engineers’ Club was founded in 1979 by the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The aim of the Civil Engineers’ Club is to promote social and sporting activities amongst Civil Engineers and their families, whether working or retired, and to provide an opportunity to meet other Civil Engineers outside their working environment.

The Flyer publicises the programme. It is produced at the beginning of each year and circulated to all members.

This year’s AGM was held at One Great George Street on Tuesday 10 April 2018. After three years as Chair, Jean Venables stepped down at this meeting. The Club is most grateful to Jean for all the work which she did for its members during her term and we wish her well with all her other voluntary activities which she still carries out for the ICE. Our new Chair is Professor Tim Broyd.

The AGM was followed by a presentation from Brittany Harris entitled “The role of engineers in achieving global sustainable development – what can we do?” This was a most interesting and thought-provoking talk and was well attended. To see the slides of her talk click on the link below:

Club activities
The Club runs a variety of events through a number of sections. These cover Contract Bridge, Golf, Model Engineering, Northern Ireland, Painting, Sailing, Singing, Visits and Walking. Each section has a Section Leader and its own webpage on this website.

The Club is run by a committee made up of a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and elected members, generally representing the various Club activities. They are elected annually at the Club’s annual general meeting, which is usually held in April.

The Club works closely with the ICE’s Regions, especially for national ICE events such as the Thomas Telford Golf Tournament. If there are a sufficient number of members in any particular area they can form a unit or branch with their own budget for promotion and administration costs, funded directly by the Club.

As a service to Members, we have a webpage entitled “Register” where you can find the names of all ICE members who have died since 1 January 2016.

Who can join?
Any member of the ICE and its staff, along with their spouses and children, can join and take part in any of the Club’s activities. The Club also welcomes former ICE Members and others who have professional connections with Civil Engineering. Former ICE Members can now be admitted to membership free of charge. Please contact Peter Richardson if you wish to join.

How much does it cost?
Membership is on a family basis and costs £10.00 per year – Student members are given free membership. The annual subscription is payable on 1st January each year and may be paid by ICE members with their main subscription. As outlined above, Club members also receive a Flyer outlining the coming year’s programme and regular emails from Section Leaders and the Secretary containing news of the latest events.
