Divisions, Sections and Branches


The Institution has Divisions, Branches and Sections worldwide. These organise professional, technical and social events for the benefit of local members, providing an opportunity to meet and exchange views with other industry professionals. Members of the Institution are automatically members of their national Division and local Branch, and are kept informed of events, many of which are open to non-members.

Divisions are managed by their Councils, elected from and by members in the Division.  The Divisions represent the Institution on all national matters.  Branches and Sections within a Division are accountable to their Division Council.  Branches outside of a Division are accountable to the Institution's Council.

Branches and Sections are managed by their Committee, elected from and by the members of the Branch. Some Branches are organised jointly with other professional institutions, whilst some hold joint meetings with other organisations. 

Members of Committees and programmes are shown on each Branch and Section webpage.
