I pledge to achieve the following in my two years of presidency

1. an Enabling RIBA

RIBA backed PI insurance with premiums based on size of practice, projects, and government backed insurance for risky work. Since the last four years, I have been working with people affected by the cladding crisis, builders, charities, and insurers.I would include free CPD for core competencies as part of membership benefits. 

2. an Inclusive RIBA

 

Technology and people enabled ‘RIBA presence’ in the UK and abroad for members to network, learn and share. I will also enable the RIBA supported physical library of resources for those in need for every region. This would also be a climate friendly initiative.Reduced rates room hire for regional and International members at 66PP.  

3. an Ethical RIBA 

 

Extend the ‘RIBA Compact’ to include an ethical charter for students and employees, with an annual award for best practice. I will advocate for a curriculum that recognises and redresses predominant colonialist social narratives; And emphasise the critical role that diversity and inclusion plays in fostering creativity, equity, and respect.
