Nominations invited for the RTPI NI Executive Committee 2020
The RTPI NI Executive Committee is an essential part of our work and is where RTPI members steer our programme of work. We need members to attend meetings and get involved in discussions and contribute to some work in between meetings, but we also make the meetings informal and complete the business as quickly as possible. We need our members to help set our direction of work - we need input on what is being delivered, so we know what's needed and is useful and we need ideas.
Nominations are now invited to positions on the RTPI NI Executive Committee for 2020.
