LI Committees

The LI’s 3 standing committees offer general guidance on all areas of the LI’s work, while subcommittees and working groups focus on more specialised areas including awards, editorial and financial.

The three committees are:

  1. Education & Membership Committee (EMC)
  2. Policy & Communications Committee (PCC)
  3. Technical Committee (TC)
