With over 4,600 overseas RIBA members, new plans have been introduced to develop a network of country ambassadors and overseas Chapters.
The aim is to enable members to come together as a community with common interests, to enhance their 'sense of belonging' and benefit from locally developed as well as RIBA-provided services.

The new Chapter network aims to:
- support RIBA members in their professional lives
- harness their contribution to knowledge that the RIBA can share professionally
- engage and assist local and locally-based architects and co-professionals
- continue to embed the RIBA as a 'world-class' organisation that is positively engaged with architects throughout the world.
With the establishment of the RIBA-USA Chapters, the next phase of Chapter development is to focus on countries/city states where there is a significant concentration of RIBA members, a local institute or strong partner.
