...while 'Scots-only' category snag threatens RIAS joint deal

  • Comment

A joint RIBA/RIAS agreement could run into difficulties after council refused to accept one of two last-minute amendments to the document.

Council approved the agreement that aims for a greater integration of the two bodies and the promotion of joint RIAS/RIBA membership. But it rejected a proposal from the RIAS to retain a Scottish-only membership category with the money raised used solely for work in Scotland. A further amendment that the RIAS should be free to raise its side of the joint subscription fee was approved.

Hyett, supporting the changes, said he feared the Scottish body would not accept the agreement without them. But ex-director general Alex Reid said the changes were a cause for considerable concern. RIAS will consider the agreement at its next council meeting in March.
