The composition of the Institute's Council had remained unchanged for many years and consisted of 15 elected members who served for three years. This paper outlines the proposed changes in the organizational structure of the Institute of Management Services. After much deliberation the review body agreed that the optimum size for Council in the light of the role of the Institute would be 10 members. As such a change required the endorsement of the corporate membership at the Annual General Meeting. Elected members would serve a four year term of office. Elections would be held on a two-year cycle with 50 percent of Council members standing for re-election every two years. In order to introduce the agreed changes all the members of Council stood down in 2001 but were be eligible to stand for re-election, if nominated. In the event, the number of nominations received were fewer than the number of places available on Council so an election was not necessary. In order to bring the election process onto the two-year cycle a draw was undertaken at a subsequent Council meeting for those who will stand down in 2003. The changes agreed by the membership have resulted in a streamlined Council of Management. The election process has moved away from the single transferable vote system and has been replaced by the system of first past the post.
