Tara Page has been announced as the new Chief Executive for the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT). Tara officially takes on the position on 1 January 2023.

Having worked at CIAT for many years, I have a rich insight into the opportunities and
challenges we face as a profession and the built environment sector, and how we can lead and
influence change.

I will be working with a dedicated team of members, staff, the Board and stakeholders on pertinent issues to tackle the very real challenges such as the skills shortages, the implementation of the Building Safety Act, the impacts of BREXIT and much more. I will endeavour to further develop the position and status of Architectural Technology, its community and the Institute for the betterment of society.”

With her strong and vibrant personality, vision and ambition, we have every confidence that she will lead the Institute to build further upon its success and reach for both the discipline and profession.
