IS CIHT RIGHT FOR YOU?
CIHT brings together professionals who build, maintain, operate, design and plan transportation
networks, particularly roads. Our members work in contracting, supply, consultancy, local
government, central government and academia what they all have in common is a desire
to meet societys need for sustainable and safe transportation systems and for protecting
the environment.
Whether you are a student or a company director, CIHT has a place for you and a
commitment to fulfilling your professional development needs throughout your career.
Please refer to the Institutions diversity policy on www.ciht.org.uk
NETWORKING
Branches joining CIHT gives you membership of your local branch. There are 18 branches throughout the UK,
and several in the rest of the world, and each branch organises regular meetings and seminars. High profile speakers
often address these events and they provide a convenient means for gaining continuing professional development
(CPD) experience, updating knowledge and networking with colleagues.
Each branch also holds at least one annual social event. These events are well attended by members and
local industry figures, and provide a chance for you to relax and meet fellow professionals in an enjoyable
social atmosphere.
Getting involved CIHT can only provide a strong and informed voice if it represents views from the frontline. We
therefore provide opportunities for members to participate in the running of CIHT at Council, board and branch levels.

I have always been actively involved in CIHT.
At the beginning of my career in London, I often
attended the free evening seminars. Having studied
no transport at university, it was a great way to
expand my knowledge and to meet other people
involved in the profession

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
All CIHT members have to undertake a systematic programme of Continuing
Professional Development (CPD). CIHTs CPD scheme is a way of helping
members at all levels to take reasonable steps to maintain their professional
competence and commit to a concept of lifelong learning. We recognise
that individuals and employers are usually the best judge of their CPD
needs and of the value of CPD activities they have undertaken. To this end,
CIHT stipulates quality and relevance as the key criteria for undertaking
CPD, rather than mere quantity. Members are obliged to remain competent
and up to date by undertaking the CPD activity that best meets their
development needs.
Further information is available from membership@ciht.org.uk
and proformas are available to download from www.ciht.org.uk
PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT
CIHT members are obliged to exercise professional skill and judgement
to the best of their ability; to discharge their professional responsibilities
with integrity; and to safeguard the public interest in matters relating
to their work in highways and transportation.
Members are bound by a Code of Professional Conduct that covers
the areas of competence, conduct and professionalism in members
duties to employers and clients, and to the profession and the Institution.
It also details members obligations to safeguard the public interest
and maintain professional competence. Any allegation of a breach of
the Code of Professional Conduct is investigated by CIHTs Disciplinary
Committee, and appropriate action taken.
A full version of the Code of Professional Conduct, which also details
CIHTs disciplinary and appeals procedures, is available in the members
