WINIR is governed by its Constitution that specifies that the WINIR Council, consisting of a President, Secretary, Treasurer, Publicity Officer and four other elected members (Art 6.3), is "responsible for the general welfare of the Network, its finances, the processing of membership applications, the maintenance of the membership lists, and the production and auditing of accounts" (Art 6.1). Furthermore, "the membership of the Network oversees and monitors its activities and organization, and may express its view by majority vote at a quorate Membership Meeting and by recorded ballots of the membership as a whole" (Art. 5.1).
