Our Management Board

The Board is ultimately responsible for deciding on our strategic direction.

It sets the Association’s values and standards and monitors the extent to which we are achieving our high level aims and ambitions. It is also responsible for ensuring we fulfil our legal responsibilities and meet the expectations of our regulators.

There are 12 places on our Board. Board members all give their time on a voluntary basis, receiving no payment. They bring considerable knowledge and expertise from a variety of different backgrounds.

All twelve Board members are elected by the Association’s membership.

The Board meets ten times during the year.
