Organizational structure of the IBSP is divided into two branches: Executive Branch and Member Branch. Executive Branch, also called the Board of IBSP is an elected branch that is responsible for accomplishing the mission of the IBSP with the help of the Member Branch. Applications are open for both Executive and Member Branch of the IBSP. Based on A’ Design Award winner status, A’ Design Awards could apply for both Executive Branch and the Member Branch free of charge. Furthermore, there are no yearly fees from A’ Design Award winners.

Members are expected to obey the following rules: 1. IBSP members need to be respectful of other IBSP members. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning. 2. Members are asked to not disclose the private contact information to any 3rd party, board, or list any private contact information of other members, under any condition. If you feel the need to share contact information of a IBSP member with a non-member, you should have explicit written permission of the member before you could share any information. 3. Members are asked to "follow" Executives and support their events and initiatives when possible. 4. Members are not asked to act as "Executives". If members note an issue which contravenes something in the IBSP or IBSP members they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Executive Board. Please do not contact other members yourself or act as "Executives". Members who constantly "act" as "Executives" may be warned. 5. IBSP follows a three strike policy. Members will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offences in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary restriction will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days. If warnings continue, the member could be forcefully retired. Arguing with "Executives" after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Members who feel they have been unfairly warned are welcome to contact the "Coordinator". 6. Members are not to represent the IBSP to the public, press or other entities unless clearly given such authority by the Executive Board. 7. Members must be philanthropic in their nature.
