The new IAPH Constitution coming into force in June 2016 defines the Council as the governing body of IAPH, replacing the defunct Board of Directors and Executive Committee.  The former was functioning as the policy making body and the latter the chief executive body under the old regime.


The Council comprises:


  1. Board of Execuive* Directors (‘the Board’) consisting of President (ex officio Chair of the Board and of the Council) and six Regional Vice Presidents


       (*Executive means having the right to vote at the Council meeting.)


  1. Non– Executive Directors consisting of:


  • Immediate Past President;
  • Conference Vice Presidents;
  • Secretary-General;
  • Managing Director – Policy and Strategy;
