About Us

Councils and Committees

The Federation’s representative Council and committees meet regularly in order to discuss the issues that are of most relevance and concern to members, with the aim of finding solutions that can benefit the entire industry.

Federation Council

The Federation Council is the policy making body of the Federation. Members of Council are elected through direct nominations from the Federation's four specialist sector committees and its seven Local Associations. The Federation Council determines the future strategy for the Federation and the operational details are then carried out through the sector committees.

The Council also nominates representatives to other outside bodies associated with the construction industry including the Construction Industry Training Board, the CBI and the Joint Council for the Building and Civil Engineering Industry (NI).
