The Royal College of Art Society was established in 1982 after a change of name from OSARCA - the "Old Students Association of the 'Royal College of Art'" - (which was first established as such in 1912). The Society continues its role of serving the benefit of graduates and associates of the Royal College of Art by providing a professional and social network: continuing initiatives such as its "first exhibition held in the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1923". The RCA Society has an established constitution and holds annual elections to its Management Committee. All our meetings are open to members (whether recent or 'ancient') and we encourage full participation both in the decision making process and in the events / activities the Society organises. Our website contains a search database facility which provides comprehensive information and members details to the professional world of art and design.
