During most of its early history the organization had a rather informal structure and documents tracing organizational matters are rare, dispersed or lost. Only recently did it get a written constitution, since it was obliged to have one under English law as a registered charity. A considerable proportion of the important decisions have been taken at coffee breaks during conferences, in airport lounges, and before, during and after (usually) good dinners. (From a culinary point of view this is by far the best organization I have been involved in.) However, notes on napkins are easily lost or difficult to read and interpret.
