Corporate membership is for organisations which are actively involved in regional development, research and policies. It is for managing authorities, university departments, institutes, think tanks, consultancies and the like. Corporate membership allows employees from your organisation to enjoy the many benefits of being a member of the RSA.
What our members say:
"We are a corporate member of the RSA because it brings us into contact with a range of high quality thinking about how urban forms work or could work and how public policy can most effectively act in terms of economic geography. It helps us think about cities in new and creative ways that enhance our ability to form evidence based strategy and work effectively to implement it."
Derek Whyte, Assistant Director of Economic Regeneration, Preston City Council, UK
