Governing Board

We are led by a Governing Board, elected by the members and chaired by the President. Our four Vice Presidents, Honorary Treasurer and Honorary Company Secretary are members of the Board, together with five elected members. The Governing Board provides strategic leadership and direction whilst also ensuring good governance and effective control. The Board delegates some of its responsibilities to various committees, which also have an advisory role.
