Member Networks

Our networks are volunteer groups run by members, for members.

At CIEEM we have something for all our members, wherever you are and whatever your interests:

  • National Sections representing members in Wales, Ireland and Scotland.
  • Regional Sections for members across England.
  • Special Interest Groups (SIGs) focussing on specific topics.

Each network is run by a committee of volunteers and provides opportunities for members to share knowledge, meet like-minded people and learn more about the science and practice of our profession. They do this by:

  • Organising events, such as workshops and field trips.
  • Speaking to students and early careers members.
  • Promoting professional standards.
  • Feeding into consultations.
  • Representing the views of members at a local, national and international level.

There are currently over 170 Member Network volunteers doing amazing work all over the country, as well as overseas. If you’d like to find out about who they are, what they get up to and how you can get involved, head on over to their pages in Members’ area, where you can also sign up to hear from your chosen networks under your Personal Preferences,

Find their latest activities under News and Events.
