​RIBA Board and Committees

RIBA Board

The RIBA Board of Trustees was created in March 2020. It is responsible for the management of RIBA’s business and Board Members are the Trustees of RIBA as a charity. It oversees the majority of RIBA’s committees, with the exception of the Nominations Committee, Standards Committee and Nations & Regions Council Committee, which all report directly to Council.
