Elections 2018

Be the change that you want to see: the 2018 RTPI Elections

Voting in the 2018 RTPI elections opens 3 September


If you want to see change in your Institute, you need to vote for the best leaders.

It's key to ensure a range of experiences are represented in every corner of the Institute – from gender and age to sector and specialism.

The GA is the voice of the members, and represent each type of membership. Who do you want to debate the key issues and elect the right leaders to guide the direction of the RTPI?

Whoever is voted in as Vice-President will be the face of the Institute, travelling around the world, speaking at events as well as to important individuals. Who do you think will make a good figure head?

The roles are:

Vice President for 2019 (will become President in 2020) (elected by chartered members)


Board of Trustees (elected by the General Assembly):

Chair of the Board of Trustees

Honorary Treasurer

Trustee for Scotland

3 Chartered Trustees – Corporate


General Assembly:

14 Chartered Members (elected by chartered members)

3 Students or Licentiates (elected by student and licentiate members)

1 Legal Members/Legal Associates (elected by chartered members and legal associates)

2 Associate Members (elected by associate members)


We are hoping to elect individuals who are able to demonstrate a variety of different life and work experiences, a zest for new ideas, a willingness to speak their mind, strategic vision and a desire to make a difference – most importantly we are looking for people with a real commitment to the RTPI and its objectives. It is important that the Board and GA reflects its community, therefore we need a good balance of gender, age, skills, ethnicity and geographic diversity around the table. Different experiences and views are key for effective decision making.

Please see code of conduct for more information on the elections process.

Voting closes 3 October
