Boards and committees
The Society has a number of boards and committees that run and influence its activities.
Board of Trustees and Representative Council
The Board of Trustees is the Society’s executive and ensures we conform to the terms of our Royal Charter and status under law as a charitable body. It has the ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the Society’s objectives are met and for the financial transactions of the Society.
The Representative Council consists of our Trustees and representatives of all the Society’s Member Networks. It provides a mechanism for members to advise the Board of Trustees.
