Our governance

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors (the Board) is the governing body responsible to the members for managing the business and affairs of the IRM. Its role is essentially strategic. Operational and day-to-day management is the responsibility of the chief executive, who works with the Board to develop and deliver IRM strategy.

The Board Charter sets out the respective roles, responsibilities and authorities of the board of directors (both individually and collectively) in setting the direction, the management and the control of the Institute.
