The Civil Engineers' Club
Institution of Civil Engineers


The objectives of the Club are:-

  1. Fostering the well-being of Civil Engineers during their professional life and afterwards.
  2. Promoting social and sporting activities amongst Civil Engineers and their families.
  3. Giving members of the Institution the opportunity for creating and maintaining friendships established throughout their professional life.
The Civil Engineers’ Club was founded in 1979 by the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The Club is run by a committee made up of a Chair, Vice Chair, 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.

This year’s AGM was held at the ICE in London on 11 July 2023.

Following the AGM there was a most interesting and well-attended Panel Discussion about the UK’s infrastructure. There was a highly-qualified panel consisting of Sir John Armitt, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission; Mark Foy, Chief Executive and Chief Nuclear Inspector, United Kingdom’s Office for Nuclear Regulation; Jane Simpson, Director of Capital Delivery, Commercial and Engineering, United Utilities Group; and Claire Wilson, Editor of New Civil Engineer.

The meeting was online also. To view the proceedings event click on the link below:

Club activities
The Club runs various events through a number of sections. These cover Bouldering (a new activity), Contract Bridge, Golf, Northern Ireland, Sailing, Singing, Visits and Walking. Each section has a Section Leader and its own web page on this website.

The Club works 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 July 2017. You will not find this information reported anywhere else.

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.
