The IPA governance structure is supported by a number of operational teams, justice contacts and individuals. These teams both contribute to and deliver on the organisation’s strategies through creating and implementing work and communications plans.


These teams include the IPA Core Team and the IPA Justice Contacts. Communication flows between these teams, member sisters and Presentation People.
