Kim Candler (M) Technical director, Scott Wilson I have some 30 years experience in civil engineering in the UK and overseas, specialising in geotechnics and project management.

Since 1991 I have been heavily involved in Southern Association business, initially as honorary secretary, and then as a committee member before becoming chairman in 1998/99.

During this time, I have realised the immense value of the links that the local associations provide between individual members and the Institution.

As Territorial Member, I would seek to promote and strengthen these links and ensure that the views of the Southern Association and its members are fully represented in Great George Street.

Peter Cross (F) Technical Director, Dean & Dyball My career has been in regional contracting covering a wide range of civil engineering on diverse contracts.

A close involvement with the Southern Association led to my being chairman in 1997/98.

I see the role of the local associations as most important in identifying the relevance of the Institution to the general membership.

My particular interests are a close involvement with current initiatives in the industry and the profession. I wish to see the further development of innovative and efficient construction processes, linked to the development of systems that support increasingly safe and environmentally sound construction methods.

Nigel Gunner (M) Proprietor, Nigel Gunner Consulting I am a practising consultant, following a wide and varied career with Southampton City and Eastleigh Borough councils.

I have served on various local association committees, including chairing the AME division, the southern PEI, and the Southern Association for the 1999/2000 session.

The Institution is its members, and these are best served by their local associations. Local and national issues are important in this changing environment in which we live, and these must be incorporated and implemented by consultation throughout the Institution structure.

I would hope to continue the pro-active involvement that the Southern Association has established at Council and to ensure the local viewpoint is heard.
