Incoming RSAW President Gavin Traylor's message to members

On 1 September, Gavin Traylor succeeded Ryan Stuckey as RSAW President and issued the following statement to fellow members in Wales.

03 September 2021

Begin at the beginning.

Not many would have predicted the past 18 months and the challenges everyone has faced on both a professional and personal level.

As we near the autumn and start to get back to some sort of normality, I will begin my term as your RSAW President.

My focus has always been the future of architects in a sustainable Wales, but I am especially eager to hear what really matters to you.

I believe architects need to play a pivotal role in shaping a sustainable environment, that promotes health and wellbeing, that drives home the zero carbon / beyond zero carbon agenda.

There are going to be challenging times ahead, but I believe we have a chance to make the most of the opportunities that arise and harness the skills that architects possess.

It is truly an honour to represent all architects across Wales and I am looking forward to working with our RSAW Team to ensure architects continue to have a voice that is listened to, respected and valued.

Finally, as a personal note I would like to thank outgoing President Ryan Stuckey for his help and guidance over the past year whilst President Elect. Many thanks Ryan.

Gavin Traylor

RSAW President
