Committee Allocations

Help shape the future of RTPI

With the relaunched 2020-2030 Corporate Strategy, it's an exciting time to get involved to help shape the future of the RTPI.  RTPI's Committees and Panels all play a vital role in leading various strands of our work. Current priority areas include the impact of Brexit; implementing the international sustainable development agenda; build the value of membership and professionalism; support and raise the profile of planning; promote and become diverse and inclusive profession; develop new routes to planning.

The outputs of our Committees and Panels have been driven by the extraordinary work of the volunteers who gave their time to them.  We want this to continue and are therefore keen to encourage as wide and diverse a membership as possible.  This way the views, experience and knowledge of all our members will continue to enrich our work.

Please note that, if you are already a member of a Committee, you will need to re-apply for 2020. According to RTPI regulations RTPI members are eligible to apply to become the members of the Committee or Panel. The appointments will be as per the Board of Trustees decision. The composition of Committees should consist of a majority of General Assembly members.
