Board of Trustees

The Council’s activities are managed by a volunteer board of trustees called the Executive Committee and a small team of employees.

The Committee consists of 12 elected individuals from full member institutions of the Council, who are responsible for the overall management and control of UKCGE. To lead the work of the Council, the Executive Committee has four Honorary Officer posts — Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.

All Executive Committee members are elected for a three year term and support the Council on a voluntary basis. The Committee meets at least four times a year to develop and agree all new initiatives, and to oversee the work and direction of the Council.
