Our Trustee Board governs and controls the Institution. Our Corporate and Associate Members elect our Trustees; elections are held every year.
The Trustee Board typically meets eight times a year and Trustees are expected to attend most, if not all, board meetings. It is also customary for Trustees to attend Council meetings.
The Charity Commission, our Royal Charter and By Laws, our Trustee Role Profile and our Trustee Code of Conduct set out the responsibilities of the Trustee Board.
