Election success for Dr Fiona Grant

Dr Fiona Grant from the School of the Built Environment has been elected by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors membership to stand on the RICS Governing Council. Over the last few years, RICS has moved from a UK-centric professional organisation with overseas offices to a truly international organisation headquartered in London and operating out of market-facing hubs across UK and Ireland, Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe, Middle East and Africa.

The Governing Council sets the long-term direction for RICS and includes elected members from all world regions.

Dr Grant stood for elections by the whole membership and was one of eighteen candidates standing for five elected places. Voting closed on 31st March and she was successful in being elected as one of the five candidates, receiving the highest number of votes from everyone standing.

Dr Grant is currently RICS Scotland Chairman 2012/13 and is delighted to be able to continue working with RICS to help shape the future of the profession.
