Governance is the establishing of policies and the monitoring of their implementation, with an aim to balance the powers of the members and the organisation. Both The Ivors Academy and its members have a duty to ensure that in meeting the goals of the organisation, we abide by the governance principles we have in place.

The documents below should be read and understood by all Standard and Academy members, as well as all members of The Ivors Academy Board and Committees.

The Ivors Academy is the trading name of BASCA, the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. Accordingly, our Articles of Association and Codes of Conduct relate and refer to BASCA.
