Joanna Holland's name will be familiar to anyone who reads NCE's What's On column as a contact for meetings. But if you imagine that she sits by her phone waiting for members to call, you could hardly be further away from the truth.
Listing the things she is involved with would take up all the available space.
Officially her job title is local associations officer which means that she acts as the conduit between the ICE and the local associations. It's not simply a question of passing on papers however, but a hands-on job which can involve her in all kinds of activities, including the minutiae of a Presidential visit.
She has nothing but praise for the local association officers. 'They've got jobs and families but still give up their spare time, willingly, to organise meetings etc for ICE members, ' she says. It's a pattern she follows herself as well. One of her jobs is to look after the Students and Graduates National Committee and the Association of London Graduates and Students.
Should you attend one of their evening meetings it's a safe bet that you will find her there (and joining in the networking afterwards).
She has been at Great George Street for nine years - 'I didn't realise it was so long' she says in mock horror - and it has definitely changed her view of civil engineering. 'We went on a site visit some years ago to three of the Jubilee Line Extension stations and I was amazed at how diverse civil engineering is - not just bridges and roads!'
So what does she do when not looking after the Graduates and Students, advising local associations, acting as IT co-ordinator, issuing rail warrants or any one of a hundred other functions that fall within her remit? She smiles enigmatically; 'You wouldn't be able to print my answer'.
