First female regional chair of CIBSE East Anglia appointed
Nicola Booth has been elected as the first female East Anglia Regional Chair of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
Nicola, who works for Concertus Design & Property Consultants in Ipswich as a Senior Mechanical Engineer, was elected as Chair of CIBSE East Anglia having previously been the Hon. Secretary and holds eight years total service on the Regional Committee.
In Nicola’s new role as Chair, her main responsibility will be engendering enthusiastic support for the region’s activities. As well as attending all meetings of the committee, she will also represent the region at CIBSE Headquarters and be an ex-officio member of the Regional Liaison Committee and CIBSE Council.
Nicola is an MCIBSE accredited Senior Mechanical Engineer with thirteen years of experience in the construction industry. The projects Nicola has delivered cover a wide range of sectors including commercial, education, healthcare, residential and leisure.
She is passionate about education and is keen to make schoolchildren aware of the options available to them in the Building Services area. She often leads workshops in schools and visits careers events such as the Suffolk Skills Show; an event she attends on behalf of CIBSE every year.
Commenting on her new role Nicola said: “I am honoured to have been asked by the past chairman to undertake this role. I’m looking forward to building the committee’s strength and focusing on services for our members and future engineers who are training in our local colleges and universities.”
