Higher RCOT fee with complimentary specialist section membership Scotland Keep up good work Ensure all content is labelled with the region(s) it applies to or is relevant to. England is one region and should not be regarded as the default just because it is largest. Things are better than they used to be but there is still room for improvement. I can still read things and sometimes not be clear

whether it applies to me in Scotland or not.How many retired members are there? More advertisement for new members and the benefits this brings. Wider study days for all member across the UK/ Larger region areas. More links with accessible design networks such as architectural design, to influence sustainable housing Wales Publicise regional meetings Regular Network Edition emails

Next Steps Detailed analysis of survey responses to inform action plan Regional rep role crucial consider how to recruit where we presently have no rep Look at alternatives for providing local study days for areas struggling to arrange these or with no rep Keep up the good work! The work of the team is above their day job and much appreciated to put on 2 study days and support the annual conference. Celebrate those who put this work in. Thanks so much (London & SE Member)
