The Guardians' Committee is responsible for upholding the ethos and traditions of the SPAB. The committee meets ten times a year and plays a leading role in our listed building casework and historic building policy discussions. Guardians are elected from the membership each year. Any paid-up member of the Society can put themselves forward as a candidate for the Guardians' Committee and, if candidates outnumber vancancies, an election is held by ballot.

The SPAB is currently undertaking a committee review exercise that could result in changes to the Society’s governance and committee structure from 2019 onwards. This could affect the composition and role of the Guardians’ Committee and also Guardian term limits. Proposed changes will be put to the Guardians’ Committee for a vote at the 2018 SPAB AGM.
