IITP Constitution and Bylaws
The rules and principles of IITP are enshrined in the Institute's Constitution and Bylaws.
These documents are extremely important to the governance, management and other functions of the Institute and are also protected by law.
Breaches of the Constitution or Bylaws by members are treated very seriously.
The Constitution of the IITP establishes the structure, procedures, powers and duties of the Institute and its officers, and is the overall governing document the Institute operates under. No other rule, policy or procedure may breach the Constitution.
The Institute hasn't always had the current Constitution - in fact it was only approved and adopted in 1991 at a Special General Meeting (SGM) in Dunedin. It has been modified several times since.
The Constitution is also protected from the Institute's members, and may only be changed by a 2/3rds majority vote at a Special General Meeting (SGM) called specifically to change the Constitution.

The Bylaws of the Institute define many of the higher-level processes and policies for the correct and proper administration of the Institute.
The Bylaws may not breach the Constitution in any way and are modified only via a two thirds majority vote of the National Council.
