Our History: Into The Future

The process of the RIN's evolution continues today. In 2002, the RIN made its first appearance on the internet, and its website has been consistently popular ever since as a source of news for everyone with an interest in navigation. In 2004, the Council began investigating ways to provide members with legal protection. Three years later, to mark its 60th anniversary in 2007, the Institute changed its status once again, as it had to mark its 25th. It gained a Royal Charter, becoming an 'incorporated body' just after the stroke of midnight on January 1 2007. In the wake of the change, the Institute rebranded itself, developing a new logo for the 21st century and a new website to serve members and visitors as an electronic 'version' of the Institute itself.

As the navigation community itself evolves in the 21st century, the RIN will develop to meet its changing needs. Going forward, the Institute will continue to increase its corporate and affiliate Membership, and reach out to new audiences, in particular young people.

The first 60 years of the RIN have taken it far from its original starting point. But while the way in which it achieves its objectives may be different now, its aims remain the same today as they were in 1947, and the strength to evolve still remains embodied in those members who play an active part in the Institute's life. To shape the RIN of tomorrow, join or get involved today.
