Regional Management Boards (RMBs) oversee our work at a local level across the nine English Regions. Each guides a programme of regional activity through the preparation, monitoring and delivery of the Regional Business Plan. It is supported by members of the Regional Activities Committee (RAC) which delivers activities arranged by and for members of the Region, including CPD programmes, events, newsletters, awards as well as other activities.  

Each Regional Management Board is composed of the Region’s elected Officers and the Immediate Past Chair. RMBs are supported by RTPI Regional Coordinators – and act as a key contact for members and volunteers alike. The Regional Activities Committee is of a similar in structure.
