Within the Yorkshire Humber region, there are just over 2,000 individual RIBA members and 164 RIBA chartered practices. 

These members are represented by the regional council, which consists of elected honourary officers, branch representatives and working group convenors. It is customary for the honourary officers to serve for two years. The council meets 4 times a year with an Annual General Meeting in the autumn. 

In addition, the regional council elects two representatives to sit on the RIBA National Council.
