RIBA confirms president is paid a salary – so how much do they get?


Is the RIBA a golf club or a Union? Have never quite understood. Is its role to promote Architecture or strengthen the professional practice of the Architect? A longer term paid presidential role that addresses the challenges facing the profession seems the only way forwards. The profession is losing relevance, despite the excellence of the new generation engaging in practice, and the RIBA is increasingly sidelined due to a weak leadership structure that needs to change. The failure of the RIBA to lead on changes in education is a painful reminder of its current shoe gazing impotence. A properly supported president that has a sufficient term to affect change would surely be a good thing for us architects?
