                                                                      What are your visions and expectations
                                                               Q.for RISM and its members?
                                                               RISM now has about 11,000 members. It shows RISM
                                                               is relevant to those practising as surveyors in the built
                                                               environment. The public is becoming increasingly aware
                                                               of our “Sr’ title which is officially registered with under

                                                               being relevant and proud of our “Sr” title. However,
                                                               we must remember the professional responsibilities
                                                               that come with it. We must ensure that we have high
                                                               competency standards and a code of conduct that the

                                                               RISM must also be relevant to the public and be the
