The IED is broadly organised as a series of committees, interest groups and task groups reporting to a central governing Council made up of Trustees. Specific groups and their general functions are described below.
Our organisation's puzzle pieces...
The Council is the lead governing body of the Institution and consists of a broad cross section of the membership. It debates issues of relevance to design, the Institution and society, to understand and recognise the implications of an evolving modern world and to support the Institution in realising its stated Mission.
The Chief Executive is appointed by Council to oversee the day to day business of the Institution. The CEO is supported by and responsible for the staff of the IED and has responsibility over the correspondence of the Institution; preparation for and recording of all meetings of the Council; stewardship of the library; the publication of the journal; collection of subscriptions; and the preparation of the financial accounts.
