Leadership

The IIPC is lead by a Steering Committee that provides strategic direction and officers that carry out the business of the consortium.

The Chair and Vice-Chair of the Steering Committee are voted on each calendar year. Officers are voted on by the Steering Committee and have three year terms. Steering Committee members are elected by the IIPC General Assembly and also have three year terms.

Additionally, the By-Laws to the New Consortium Agreement 2016-2020 define three Portfolios: Tools Development, Member Engagement and Partnerships & Outreach. The Portfolio Leads direct, oversee and report to the Steering Committee on work undertaken in their specific portfolios.
