Our governance structure enables us to deliver on the core mission of the profession and effect positive change in the built and natural environment by drawing on expertise from around the globe and across sectors.
Our corporate governance structure is shaped by our Royal Charter, Bye-Laws and Regulation. RICS' governance structure combines governance bodies, as well as the Executive Team and Presidential Team, working harmoniously to set and execute our forward-looking strategy, so that we create confidence in markets and effect positive change in the built and natural environments.
The current structure chart (given below) has transitioned from the governance structure before the Bichard RICS Review and will further be transitioning to the structure included in the Bichard RICS Review Report.
The following boards and committees are our formal governance bodies required by our Charter and Bye-Laws and considered our top-level structure
The Executive Team consists of our CEO and Executive Directors responsible for our Operations, our Profession, our People, our Products, our Reputation and our School of the Built Environment.
The Presidential Team is elected by Governing Council.
RICS continues to evolve its governance through a series of reforms to ensure that we effectively draw on the leadership and oversight needed to shape a forward-looking strategy for the profession. For more information on our reforms please visit our vision for governance page.
