Council

Council is the highest governance organ of the Institute, determining its strategy and policy, and deciding on the allocation of resources to its various programmes.

Council consists of 19 elected members and can co-opt up to five further members, including a non-Chartered Accountant members of Council – currently Padraig McManus. The immediate past president attends Council on an ex-officio basis.

The Bye-Laws make provision for a geographical spread of Council members between the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Great Britain and for a balance between members in practice and members in business.

Council usually meets every two months but more frequent meetings can be called if the need arises.
