How IHE is run

The IHE is run by, and for, engineers, technicians and allied professionals in highways and transportation. You’ll find an IHE branch in every region of the United Kingdom.

IHE‘s head office is based in Euston Road, London and oversees the Institute’s activities with a small and experienced staff team on-hand to assist members.

IHE’s Executive Board oversees the Institute‘s management and is comprised of the Presidential team and Portfolio Group leads together with two scrutiny representatives.

IHE’s Council set the policy agenda for the Institute and take an active role in determing its direction.


Our council is headed up by a Presidential team (President, two Vice Presidents, a Past President and Treasurer) who are all elected officers.

Also sitting on council are 15 directly elected ordinary and regional members, up to four nominated members and two graduate or student members.

Council’s 26 elected members take part in three Portfolio Groups, Membership and Qualifications, Professional Development and Recruitment and Member Services.

Officers are elected in March, take office at the June AGM and normally serve for two years. Members can serve for two terms of three years, but must then stand down for at least a year. All IHE members are welcome to get involved and nominate for council vacancies. Nomination ballots go out to all members in May if there are more nominees than vacancies.

Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM)

IHE’s AGM and EGM take place each June as part of a day long schedule of events which usually includes a course or conference, council meeting, and an annual dinner and awards ceremony.

The AGM is an opportunity for the Institute to make changes to the Memorandum and Articles which set out the Institute’s governance and address motions which are raised at the March Council meeting. The EGM considers significant motions. All IHE members are welcome to take an active part and corporate members can vote at general meetings.
