Reporting to our members
Find out how our Board of Trustees reports back to our members.
How does the Board report to members?
The Board of IPWSO is elected by our members at each General Assembly (these take place every three years). Board members are elected to serve for three-year periods. The Board sets the direction of the organisation and oversees our finances and governance.
The Board of IPWSO reports back to our members using a mixture of formal and informal methods.
The Board produces an annual report. A separate version of this report, which is approved by the auditors, is sent to the Charity Commission in England and Wales. The Board also reports back to representatives of our member associations at the IPWSO General Assembly every three years at our international conference.
We have IPWSO delegates, who are representatives of our member associations. They help us to disseminate our information as well as to feedback information and priorities from their associations.
We also communicate with our members through newsletters, social media (links at the bottom of the page), ECHOs and our website.
If you have any questions about how we work or how you can get further involved in our work then we are always delighted to hear from you.
Many people make up the work of IPWSO and the vast majority of our work is completed by volunteers.
Find out about our work and impact. We publish an annual report each March with information and reports from the previous year.
