Leadership

The IIPC is led by a Steering Committee that provides strategic direction and the Exective Board, comprising at least of the Consortium Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and the Senior Staff Member, that carry out the business of the Consortium.

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

Additionally, the By-Laws to the Consortium Agreement 2021-2025 define three Portfolios: Tools Development, Membership Engagement, and Partnerships and Outreach. The Portfolio Leads direct, oversee and report to the Steering Committee on work undertaken in their specific portfolios.
