Forums

Our forums provide opportunities for you to network and share best practice with like-minded professionals and business operators.

RICS forums are responsible for producing technical guidance and information, as well as arranging conferences, summer schools and other events. They push the further development of knowledge within specialist areas of practice. Our forums are open to RICS members and non-members.

Forum steering groups

RICS staff work in partnership with the forum steering groups in delivering the various business plans in the light of the resources available. They shape the strategic direction of the forums by way of a rolling, three-year business plan, and also oversee the accreditation scheme.
