ORGANISATIONS will soon be able to join the Institution, ICE News has learned.
Affiliate membership will be offered to companies and colleges which crossover with the civil engineering industry, in an initiative which, it was said, could lead to greater sponsorship of ICE events.
Member organisations from across the world would be encouraged to use Great George Street as a base for marketing and recruitment, or as a base for international presence. Level of subscriptions paid would depend on the size of the company.
An 'affiliated to the ICE' logo will be designed for organisations to use. Employees will be issued with an affiliate ID card and one copy of NCE will be supplied for every 10 staff.
A new bylaw has been added to authorise the change.
