Next year’s IPR conference will be in the form of a congress which

will aim to get members more involved in the workings of the institute

by contributing to policy making.



The congress will allow all members of the IPR to contribute to the

council meeting and to decide budgets and strategy for the coming year,

although only the 42 council members will be able to vote.



A new executive committee will replace the board of management to

oversee the activities of the IPR. Members of the committee will be

elected from the Institute’s council.



The Institute is also considering extending the presidency to a two-year

term. It will appoint a director general for the first time next year,

following the retirement of executive director John Lavelle.



Railtrack’s director of corporate affairs Philip Dewhurst was elected as

president for 1999 and Alison Clarke keeps her role as honorary

treasurer.
