The Institute’s Constitution provides for a number of Executive Committees, each made up of a Council member and members. 

The Committee structure offers enhanced opportunities to get involved in your Institute and profession. Sitting on an IPI Committee puts you at the heart of developments in your profession and allows you to meet and work with a range of interesting people working across planning in Ireland. Each Committee has a Convenor who is a member of Council who liaises between the Committee and the Council.

Each Committee also elects a Chair and a Secretary at its first meeting. The Chair of a Committee is not required to be a Member of Council. Each Committee works to an agreed work programme.
