Chartered Architectural Technologist Jill Alexander has been appointed as Northern Ireland’s Regional Councillor for the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT). The two-year appointment for CIAT comes after Jill attended the AGM in Glasgow with the Northern Ireland contingent in 2019.
Chartered Architectural Technologists are qualified to negotiate and manage the development of a construction project. Traditionally the profession mainly attracted male practitioners, but in recent years more and more women have entered the sector.
“I am delighted to represent chartered architectural technologists in Northern Ireland – especially as our President, Eddie Weir, is an architectural technologist from Holywood, Co Down,” said Jill.
“Unfortunately, due to Covid, a number of planned events have not been able to go ahead in 2020 and we will be meeting virtually instead of in person until well into 2021. Having said that, CIAT continues to work behind the scenes to help young technologists get qualified, to represent members’ interests and to drive forward the strategic plans of the organisation at national level.”
