IPLOCA is governed by a volunteer board of directors made up of 25 owners and senior executives of major pipeline contractors and service companies. Directors representing the Regular Members divided into geographic regions and directors representing Associate Members are elected by the members of the association and generally serve a term of two years.

Following the Special General Meeting held on 20 September, membership approved the motion to ‘Exceptionally appoint for the 2021-2022 term only, up to nine additional Directors from the Regular Members and the Associate Members.’
