RICS Assembly and Governing Council 2012
Held every two years, the Assembly brings together members from all the world regions and boards to discuss and debate issues such as standards and strategy.
On Sunday, members were entertained at The Scottish Cafe following a tour of the Scottish Parliament debating chamber and reception hosted by Linda Fabiani MSP. Representatives then attended a formal dinner at the National Museum of Scotland the following evening, where Scotland’s favourite Bard, Robert Burns, was awarded the title Honorary Chartered Surveyor marking his early career as a land surveyor.
A meeting of the world Governing Council was held on the final day of the Assembly. As a member of the Scotland Board, GLM’s Managing Director Ian McKee attended the three day event, contributing to the Assembly and observing Governing Council.
The next Governing Council meeting is in India in April 2013 together with a global RICS Conference.
