Meet the Board

David Inman


Chartered Environmental Surveyor


Having been involved locally with RICS with Matrics and Lancashire Local Association and now Regional Board, I’m keen for members to support each other and if we do so, we all benefit.

I’m passionate about developing our skills across the profession and would definitely say that the more you participate with our profession, the more you get out of it.
