The governance of the Institute is conducted under the constitutional arrangements set out in the Articles of Association, Bylaws and Board Regulations.

The Board is responsible for the overall management and strategic development, but it delegates the day to day running to the Executive.

Other Board committees are set up to facilitate good governance giving advice and guidance or monitoring implementation of activities. These committees are either elected under the constitutional arrangements or appointed by the Board.
