In the period between the announcement of candidates on 12 June and before the voting period starts on 3 July, RIBA Presidential Election candidates will have the opportunity to campaign and participate in hustings events, which are organised by the RIBA. In addition to the guidance notes for candidates, Presidential candidates may consult the campaigning and hustings guidelines.

More information on the dates and locations of the hustings events will be available shortly.

For any queries related to these guidelines, please email elections@riba.org

Voting opens on 3 July at 9am and will remain open until 7 August at 5pm.

The candidates’ statements and voting information will be sent directly by the Electoral Reform Services when ballots open.

The RIBA is governed by the RIBA Council, elected from among the RIBA membership, the majority of whom are chartered architects.

Council passes down detailed responsibility to the RIBA Board and main committees. Chaired by the President, Council meets four times annually and is ultimately responsible for the conduct and development of the Institute.

Make sure your voice is heard by choosing to represent your Institute and your fellow members on a regional, national and international scale.

Members of Council are Charity Trustees of the RIBA. Please consult the Guidance Note for Charity Trustees.
