Bruce Clavey (M) Director, Bruce Clavey Waste Management Consultancy My career has spanned 38 years in local government, with senior positions in highway maintenance and waste management.
I have been active with the local association since 1976, and was instrumental in the development of the Chilterns Association as it is today.
I strongly hold the view that younger, mid career engineers should be actively leading local associations but, in the current climate, work pressures appear to restrict this.
Therefore, with more time becoming available, I offer myself to represent to Council, taking the views of the members of all ages and grades to further develop the role and practices of the Institution.
Graham Plant (F) Director, Graham Plant Consulting I believe that the Institution should:
determine and respond to the needs of its members, be dynamic and contemporary, proactively raise the profile of civil engineering in society and government, and exercise professional management and business planning.
Local associations play a key role in representing grass roots views and providing fraternity for its members and my first responsibility would be to act as the vital conduit between the Chilterns Association and Council.
Secondly, I seek to draw on my career experience working in the UK and overseas to contribute in the further development and modernisation of this Institution.
Prakash Sharma (F) Principal, Kashec Consultants I have been actively involved in Institution affairs for a number of years. I joined the committee of Chilterns Association in 1993 and in 1996/97 served as chairman.
That year I was closely involved with the major changes that were taking place within the Institution at the time, which involved wide consultation with the committee and members of the association.
I would be privileged if, as a territorial member, I can represent Chilterns Association at Council and influence and contribute to the policy making process of the Institution for the benefit of its members.
