Sometimes it really is who you know that makes all the difference.
RIBA Chartered Membership gives you the chance to build relationships with experienced practitioners and like-minded individuals, making valuable industry connections. Developing a strong network will ultimately make your job easier, help you make connections and foster countless new opportunities.
You’ll be part of a network of 41,000 members who are recognised globally as being the very best in the industry. There are more than 400 local and national networking opportunities around the UK available every year, all discounted for Chartered Members. If you have a special interest such as R&D, housing or regulation, there’s a group for you.
Our networking events are open to members at all levels, offering opportunities for newly qualified architects to share experiences, find solutions to problems and build relationships with the next generation of practice directors. You’ll meet experienced architects with the opportunity to learn from the best, pick up hints and tips and learn how they developed their careers, as well as meeting industry experts.
Upcoming events include talks and lectures on: ‘Unbuilt North East following in the footsteps of the great paper architects; ‘Renewable Heat and Electric Systems’ in Brighton; and 'Financial Management: How to Run a Profitable Business’ in Leeds, and the ‘Mover, Shaker, Architectural Risk Taker Curator Tour’ at RIBA North in Liverpool.
