Professionalism

 

Introduction to FB’s writings on Professionalism

 

Francis Bennion's connection with professionalism began in 1965 when he was appointed Secretary (now called Chief Executive) of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the leading professional body in the field of surveying, land agency and estate agency. Finding there was in progress a general attack on the ideals of professionalism he wrote a number of articles defending them, and also the book Professional Ethics: the Consultant Professions and their Code. As Secretary of the RICS he took a leading role in seeking to obtain statutory registration of estate agents and was a member of the short-lived Estates Agents Council and a governor of the College of Estate Management. In 1969 he founded a charitable housing trust (the World of Property Housing Trust) which obtained donations from leading figures in the property world. Through amalgamation, this is now subsumed in the Sanctuary Housing Association. In 1970 he helped to found the non-strike Professional Association of Teachers, and was its first national chairman.
