In 2019 the RTPI ran a ballot to Chartered Members on a series of important changes to our governance structure. We received a resounding endorsement with 95% of those voting backing the changes.
The proposals involved changes to the size of the Board of Trustees, a recalibration of the General Assembly and a series of changes to the Institute’s bye-laws and regulations.
A smaller Board of Trustees will mean more efficient and agile decision making and that the changes will also give both the Board and the General Assembly renewed focus on the major issues that affect the profession.
In 2023 these changes were implemented and the Institute's bye-laws and regulations updated accordingly. This now brings the Institute in line with current best practice guidelines issued by the Charity Commission, increasing transparency, accountability and good governance.
