Although I have been asked to stand again for the RIBA presidency to represent small practices (outside the M25), I have decided, reluctantly, that it is time to stand down and let the next generation take up the challenge. I understand one of the candidates is Valerie Owen, who came second to my third in 2004.

I have been on the national council for six years and known Valerie for at least three of those.

I have stood twice for the presidency, in 2001 against Paul Hyett and in 2004 against Jack Pringle, and although it might well have been third time lucky for me I am placing my support behind Valerie Owen, whom I believe to be a worthy candidate.
