From time to time, the Council may set up taskforces to handle certain issues which demand particular attention such as upcoming conferences, awards competitions, annual dinner, and revisions to Articles and bye-laws etc.
The Hong Kong Institute of Urban Design is a company limited by guarantee which was incorporated under the Companies Ordinance in 2010.
The Institute is governed by a memorandum and by articles of association. Together with a set of bye-laws now approved at the EGM held on 5th May 2011 these instruments cover, amongst other things, the classes and rights of and requirements of entry to membership of the Institute, the composition and powers of the council to manage the Institute and the conduct of general meetings.
Essentially, the code will spell out the aspirations and vision of the Institute. It will promote high standards of practice by establishing a framework for the acceptable professional behaviour and responsibilities of members. Rules will be incorporated to apply and enforce the code where breaches occur.
