Michael Hannaway, pictured, has been elected to sit on the Governing Council of the RICS (Royal Intuition of Chartered Surveyors), one of the largest professional bodies in the world.

RICS’s top-level strategy is set by its Governing Council, which is chaired by the RICS president and includes members from all world regions.

The council meets twice per year, once to debate strategy and once to exercise oversight, and is supported by other member groups.

Mr Hannaway, Principal of Hannaway & Hannaway Land & Chartered Engineering Surveyors, based in Newry, says that he is privileged to perform the role

“Being elected by RICS members to take a seat on Governing Council is a real honour and something that I am delighted to do. Governing Council plays a key role in debating RICS strategy, so the election is something that members take very seriously, and I look forward to playing a positive role in helping shape the future of the profession,” he says.

Susan Mason, Acting Regional Director for RICS in Northern Ireland said: “Michael has contributed significantly to RICS through his roles as RICS Northern Ireland Chairman and as a member of the UK & Ireland World Regional Board. It is considerable achievement to be elected to Governing Council and we wish Michael well in the role.”
