The WHIP membership is made up of partner groups who have signed a memorandum of understanding, dating back to 2010 and updated every five years. From those partners, a Steering Committee is formed and from that committee, officers are elected. The WHIP Steering Committee meets every other month, and also holds an Annual Meeting for all partners. WHIP is governed by a set of bylaws and directed by a strategic management plan.
