RIBA runner Roche lays his cards on the table

Whilst I welcome the AJ conducting a poll on who should be the next president of the RIBA, (AJ 15.1.04), I feel readers should be making a selection based upon policy rather than personality. As the only person to openly declare policy objectives, I feel I may be at a disadvantage or advantage, depending upon one's viewpoint.

I would therefore urge all prospective candidates to publish their election manifestoes on RIBAnet, as I have done, and urge all members to use this excellent facility to inform and shape the debate over the coming months.

This could ensure an exciting election campaign, and lead to policies being developed, which have been thoroughly tested on the membership prior to an election. Let's face it, this is no beauty contest.

Chris Roche, principal, 11.04 Architects, London EC2
