RTPI Elections 2019

Voting in the 2019 RTPI elections is now open


Following a successful nominations process, voting for the RTPI elections is open. Please look out for a letter or an email from Mi Voice, this year's election provider, and ensure you vote by 17:00, 26 September.

The nominees, electorate and RTPI staff are requested to follow the RTPI code of conduct for elections at all times during the election process including voting.




This year is a particularly special one for the RTPI - in September, we will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the granting of our Royal Charter.

Over the last 60 years, we've grown to become the largest planning institute in Europe, raising professional standards, promoting the planning profession and influencing planning policy.

If you want to see this growth continue and help shape the future of your Institute, you need to vote for the best leaders.

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, speaking at events as well as to key individuals in planning.  Who do you think will make a good figure-head?

The roles are:

Vice President for 2020

Vice President for 2020 (will become President in 2021) (elected by Chartered Members) 

You can view videos from the two candidates below:

We need 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.
