Ultimate responsibility for the Foundation resides with the membership, which exercises its power through a Board of Trustees. The Board comprises both elected members and the nominees of certain institutions with elected members always in the majority. The Board meets routinely four times a year and is joined in its discussion by co-optees from users and staff and by the Foundation’s directorate. A vital function of the Board is to review at every meeting the progress of the Foundation’s development plan. All trustees are the directors of the company.
All our Trustees have current or past experience of being a trustee, director or partner in either a charity, commercial or professional organisation.
