The Trustee Board of the Institution maintains committees inline with the best practice guidance on corporate governance contained in the UK Corporate Governance Code to address audit and risk, the remuneration of senior staff members, the appointment of Members of Trustee Board to its committees and the appointment of Executive Directors.

The Nominations and Appointments Committee also has a role in nominating members for internal and external honorary awards.

The Trustee Board delegates some decisions to The President’s Committee, which is a standing committee comprising of the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and Director General.

The Membership Committee oversees the election and promotion of members while the Disciplinary Committee rules on breaches of the Institution’s Member Regulations. The Professional Standards Committee establishes and maintains the standards for each grade of membership.

The Committees usually meet electronically using teleconferencing facilities, although they do periodically meet face-to-face at convenient locations around the United Kingdom.
