The Council is the governing body of our organisation. All acts undertaken by our officers and staff are in the name of, and with the authority of, the Council. The Council concerns itself with strategy and co-ordination. The Executive Board and Standing Committees are responsible for the CIPR's day-to-day operations.

We carry out much of our business using committees, commissions and groups consisting of Council members and co-optees. Elected Council members and those from national, regional and established sector groups can expect to make most of their contributions in this way.
