Leadership

IREM volunteer leaders direct the activities of the organization, with members of the IREM Executive Committee and a team of Regional Vice Presidents playing central roles. They are supported on an ongoing basis by a staff of association development, management, and administration professionals. Executive Committee members and Regional Vice Presidents are part of a larger IREM leadership group called the Governing Council, which also includes elected CPM, ARM, ACoM, and CPM  Candidate Members, all international and domestic chapter presidents, and other ex officio members. The Council is the final authority on decisions affecting Institute bylaws, policy and budget matters.
