Council task and finish groups

On 30 September 2021, the RIBA Council decided to create a number of short-term Task and Finish Groups to support it in its role of giving strategic advice and guidance to the Board. To make the research/report cycle manageable, these Task and Finish Groups will have a specific brief from Council and will report back to Council after a period of around three months. They will then disband again until called upon for another task within their remit. These groups will each be coordinated by a Council member to assist with information flow back to Council. Following feedback, Council is now working through a prioritised list of topics of strategic relevance to the architecture profession and/or architects themselves, whether members or not. Council will be creating Task and Finish Groups over the coming months. This page will be updated on a regular basis.
