Like any organisation, the Society needs people with strong skills and experience to move our business forward and to protect the interests of our members.
Our Board is made up of Executive and Non-Executive Directors:
Executive Directors are full-time employees of the Society and lead the Senior Management Team in managing the day-to-day business.
Non-Executive Directors are all considered to be independent in accordance with the criteria set out in the UK Corporate Governance Code. All Directors are put up for election/re-election annually at the Society's Annual General Meeting. The home-grown knowledge of our Executive Directors, combined with the wider business knowledge of our Non-Executive Directors, provides us with a strong and balanced Board.
