    • brings together the issues discussed and resolutions proposed by the Industry Advisory Committees, where a single issue covers more than one section of the industry.
    • makes the final decisions as to the issues discussed and resolutions proposed by the Industry Advisory Committees for the single internationally recognised industry codes of standards, ethics, and core competencies.
    • clarifying the impact of language, culture, and geographical differences on the coaching and mentoring industry.

    • work closely with the Industry Directions Department on other projects, for example, identifying and registering/renewing with organisations/bodies that the IRCM CIC is and should be ‘Recognised By’; clarifying niche markets, etc.
