Be the voice of change: Join our Advisory Panels

Embrace the opportunity to champion the cause of environmental health by volunteering for the CIEH Policy and Campaigns Advisory Panels.

What are the CIEH Advisory Panels?

The CIEH Advisory Panels provide member led insight, evidence and advice on policy and campaigning activity.

Open to all CIEH members, these pivotal positions offer a platform to collaboratively shape policies, pioneer campaigns, and engage in networking events. From 2024, there will be six advisory panels:

  • Environmental Protection Advisory Panel
  • Food Advisory Panel
  • Health and Safety Advisory Panel
  • Housing Advisory Panel
  • Port Health Advisory Panel (new for 2024)
  • Public Health Advisory Panel (new for 2024)

What does being on a panel involve?

As a panel member, your informed perspectives will be instrumental in propelling the profession forward, advocating for critical issues, and crafting tools that empower environmental health professionals. Not only will you advise and guide CIEH to fulfil its core mission, but you'll also have the chance to represent us in working groups, contribute to Environmental Health News (EHN), and help to enrich our conference and events programme.

The engagements are thoughtfully designed to accommodate your professional commitments while rewarding your contributions with self-reported CPD and exclusive benefits at CIEH conferences. Your expertise is crucial to fostering a safer, cleaner, and healthier environment for all.

“Participating in CIEH advisory panels has been an invaluable professional experience through my membership in our professional body. It provides the opportunity to shape the organisation's perspectives on professional matters, future directions, resource allocation, and activities. If you are passionate about CIEH, public health, and our remarkable profession, I strongly encourage you to consider applying for membership in one or more of these panels.”
Diana Tumova MSc CEnvH Grad.IOSH, Food Safety EHO

How can I get involved?

We welcome applications to all Advisory Panels on an ongoing basis. We are currently particularly interested in applications for our two new Advisory Panels in Port Health and Public Health - the deadline for these applications is 30 November 2023.

We are seeking members to join the panels from across all sectors, all points in their career journey and across all nations. We are keen to create panels with diverse perspectives so looking to engage with EHPs working within local authorities, in the private sector or in academia from England, Wales and Northern Ireland and potentially further afield. We are also keen that members are represented by students, newly qualified graduates and all the way through to experienced professionals already supporting other networks.
