Our Council is headed up by a Presidential team (President, two Vice Presidents, a Past President and Treasurer) who are all elected officers.

Also sitting on council are 15 directly elected ordinary and regional members, up to four nominated members and two graduate or student members.

Council’s 26 elected members take part in three Portfolio Groups, Membership and Qualifications, Professional Development and Recruitment and Marketing.

Officers are elected in March, take office at the June AGM and normally serve for two years. Members can serve for two terms of three years, but must then stand down for at least a year. All IHE members are welcome to get involved and nominate candidates for council vacancies. Nomination ballots go out to all members in May if there are more nominees than vacancies.

Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM)

IHE’s AGM takes place each June as part of a day-long schedule of events which usually includes a course or conference, council meeting, and an annual dinner and awards ceremony. The AGM is an opportunity for the Institute to make changes to the Memorandum and Articles which set out the Institute’s governance and address motions which are raised at the February Council meeting.

The EGM can take place at any time of the year and considers significant motions. All IHE members are welcome to take an active part and corporate members can vote at general meetings.
