Each Board and Committee operates under specific terms of reference and Members uphold high standards of personal behaviour, both individually and in their collective responsibility, to ensure good corporate governance of the IET. It is expected that any conflicts of interest if they arise, are declared. Nothing in our procedures precludes a member from questioning any aspect of our governance, bringing forward an issue for debate, or stating his view in a personal capacity.
The normal period of service for an elected or appointed member of any Board or Committee is three years. For appointed Members, the period of service on a Board or Committee cannot be extended beyond a maximum of six years. It is customary for one-third of the members of a Board or Committee to retire each year, to ensure a regular turnover. The president is ex officio a member of all Boards and Committees.
