Christmas Message from IHE President Stephen Webb

  • Sunday December 20, 2020

This year has seen unprecedented challenges presented to us all, both in terms of our everyday living and as practitioners within the highway sector. As this most testing of years draws to its close,  it presents an opportunity for reflection.

As an industry we have demonstrated outstanding resilience, adaptability and enthusiasm to learn from the situation presented to us, and to grow as a collective group. As President of the IHE, I am proud to be part of a team which has continued to support our institute and strive to develop new initiatives to serve our members.

As 2021 approaches, I am enthusiastic for what the next year will bring. As we have adapted to this new normal, this has led to a number of reviews, which we hope will present an enhanced professional development offer to our members and ensure we operate in a leaner environment to continue to support our great industry.

I would like to take this opportunity to present my very best wishes to  you all for the Christmas period. We all deserve a welcome break to spend with our loved ones as best we can, and I look forward to us returning safe and well for the coming year.
