Institute Organisation

About Us 

The Institute has eight propositions through which stakeholders engage with BINDT, spearheaded by its marketing and PR capabilities and underpinned by its IT capability, its ‘establishment’ (people, premises and facilities) and its partners.

Figure 1 shows the Institute’s committee structure in schematic form.

The key committees have oversight responsibility for BINDT’s operations and the execution of the strategic plan, as shown in Figure 2.

  • Governance Advisory Committee
