Board of Directors

The Directors hold regular meetings during the period between annual general meetings, and generally control and supervise the activities of the company; in particular, the directors are responsible for monitoring the financial position of the company.

Directors can be elected by members if they are full members of the company. Alternatively they can be co-opted by other directors, where they have skills or experience of benefit to the board. The maximum number of directors at any time is 12, with up to 7 Elected Directors and up to 5 Co-opted Directors.

The current list of Directors is as follows:
