How to Apply

The RIBA Chartered Practice Membership year runs from the 1 July - 30 June the following year.  

From the 1 July 2014 all new and re-joining practices will pay a subscription fee based on an 18 month membership, which will run from 1 July 2014 until 31 December 2015, as we move from mid-year to calendar year subscriptions. If you join part way through the 18 month membership cycle your subscription fee will be calculated pro-rata based on each month costing 1/18 of the full payment.

The RIBA Council reviews all membership subscription rates at the end of each year to ensure that rates are appropriate.

If you are an existing RIBA Chartered Practice you can renew your subscription online. The main contact for your RIBA Chartered Practice will have access to renew when they login to the member only area using their individual RIBA Member details.

If your practice is joining for the first time or re-joining after a period away, please download and complete the application and declaration form below and send it back to:
