The Association’s Constitution requires there to be a Management Committee including four Officers: the Chair, the Treasurer, the Secretary, and the Membership Secretary. The members of the Committee are the Trustees of the charity.
Trustees have duties prescribed by the charity legislation, and are accountable to members through the Constitution and General Meetings.
Richard Hearn is Clerk to the Trustees.
The current Officers are:
Chair: Simon Foulkes
Treasurer: Stuart Goyns
Secretary: Simon Haynes
Membership Secretary and Vice-Chair: Ron Cook
The work of the Committee is split into four areas, known as “portfolio groups”. Each has a Trustee as chair, as follows:
1. Communication and Special Events – Chair, Simon Haynes
2. Volunteering and Engagement – Chair, Andrew White
3. Education and Heritage – Joint Chairs, Andy Nash and Nigel Whitburn, Laura Jacques Facilitator (Laura is not a trustee)
4. Finance, Liaison, and Compliance – Chair, Simon Foulkes
The remaining trustees not named above are linked to specific portfolio groups and may have specific responsibilities, as follows:
