In February 2019, presidents of 14 institutes and organisations representing architects across the world attended the International Presidents' Roundtable, which was hosted by RIBA at 66 Portland Place.

During the meeting, attendees discussed The Future of the Profession document, originally signed by presidents of the five architecture institutes of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. This represents their commitment to drive forward five shared principles to strengthen architecture’s compact with society, and thereby safeguard the future of the profession.

All roundtable participants were later joined by more presidents and institutes, and declared their full agreement with the five principles while committing to actions to promote these principles.
