Total ICE membership numbers grew last year for the first time since 2009, according to the Institution’s 2013 annual report and accounts, published at Council last month.
The total membership rose from 82,396 in 2012 to 84,038 in 2013 - a 2% increase - meeting the goal set out in 2013.
The strongest growth in membership by location was in the Asia Pacific region where numbers increased from 10,575 in 2009 to 12,251 last year.
In the UK, the strongest growth was in the London region, which showed a 5% increase. Overall UK membership was up 1%.
In terms of membership grade, the biggest increase was in student members, which rose from 17,686 to 18,760.
Graduate numbers also grew strongly, increasing from 16,728 in 2012 to 17,512.
The number of Members showed a slight fall from 39,387 to 39,242. Total incoming resources last year were £31.36M, up from £30.6M in 2012.
An increase in subscription revenues plus one off income worth £1.2M increased the ICE’s net incoming resources in 2013 from £1.7M to £2.7M.
One off incomes included £872,000 left to the ICE by the RJW estate and a £342,000 insurance bond in relation to the refurbishment of its 8 Storey’s Gate refurbishment.
The bond was called in because contractor Killby & Gayford went into administration and was unable to complete the contract.
The work was eventually completed under the management of Gardiner & Theobold Construction Management.
