Governance

The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management is governed by it’s Trustees Board. They are responsible for the overall control and delivery of the strategic aims and priorities of the Institution.

The Trustee Board consists of up to 15 Trustees (including a Presidential team of three Trustees) who volunteer their time and expertise. They meet regularly during the year to consider, determine and review the Institution’s strategies and policies. The role and function of the Trustee Board are laid out in the Institution’s Royal Charter and Bye-laws.
