Our top-level strategy is set by our Governing Council. This is chaired by the president and includes our members from all world regions. The council meets twice a year, once to debate strategy and once to exercise oversight, and is supported by other member groups.

These include world regional boards, national councils, UK regional boards, 17 professional group boards, and policy committees covering ethics, education, public affairs, marketing, research and dispute resolution.

Our Governing Council has delegated key decision making to its Management Board to assist in the management of operational activities.

Our Governing Council has also established an Audit Committee, a Regulatory Board, a Nominations Committee and an Administrative Appeals Panel, which all have Terms of Reference approved by the Council for the remit of their operations.
