The Institute has a parallel structure by Occupational Group and by Region.

The structure by Group allows each bargaining unit to determine its bargaining priorities and strategies, and to deal with current concerns specific to its members’ profession.

The structure by Region allows the issues and interests specific to a particular geographic Region to be reflected in the Institute’s broader concerns.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the supreme governing body. Although any member may attend, voting delegates are selected by the Groups and Regional Councils on a representational basis.
