In early 2019, we asked individuals within the building services community to start sharing their achievements and success stories using the #IamCIBSE hashtag.
From blog posts, to social media posts and selfies, we received hundreds of inspiring responses from our members, award winners and volunteers.
This year, we are celebrating the groups, networks, organisations and people that collectively make CIBSE special using #WeAreCIBSE.
How to get involved?
Follow the #WeAreCIBSE hashtag on LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter to find out what’s happening across the sector and connect with other members.
Share your successes
Use #WeAreCIBSE in your social media posts to celebrate your projects, achievements or good news stories. We are especially keen to hear of how the building services community is contributing to the fight against COVID-19.
Feature on our blog
As part of the campaign, we have a blog series which aims to tell member’s success stories and inspire others to get further involved with CIBSE’s networks.
Be an influencer
Volunteer to takeover the CIBSE Instagram story for a day to help promote building services engineering as a career and show the world what a typical day in your job role looks like.
Please contact Lucy Aldcroft (Membership Marketing & Engagement Manager) firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss an Instagram takeover or blog feature.
