The International Tourism Partnership is a global programme of the International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) and as such, is subject to the overarching governance of IBLF. The Chairman of the ITP Governing Council serves, upon invitation, as a member of the IBLF Board of Trustees. The IBLF is both a UK registered Charity and a UK company limited by guarantee. IBLF Trustees must ensure that the organisation is run in compliance with relevant laws, and good practice, and they have full responsibility for the organisation.
ITP Governing Council
The Governing Council comprises of members of ITP at CEO level. The chair is drawn from and elected by the members of the Governing Council for a renewable two year term. In an advisory capacity, it provides strategic and operational guidance to the ITP management and staff to further the mission of ITP, with members acting as ITP ambassadors with key stakeholder groups. The ITP Director, Stephen Farrant, is a permanent member of the Governing Council and reports on IBLF and ITP activities. The Governing Council meets annually.
ITP Executive Committee
ITP’s Executive Committee is the more active and operational part of the organisation. Also drawn from ITP members, the committee meets twice a year for highly collaborative and action-orientated debate and discussion. It is the Executive Committee that, through consensus, guides the activities and strategy of ITP. The Chair of the Executive Committee sits on the Governing Council in an intermediately capacity between the Council and Committee.
