The company is governed by a Board of Directors, the majority of whom are elected at general meetings of the company. The board can co-opt additional members. Membership of the company is open to any individual, corporation or body, and the Board may also appoint Life members. As a Not-for-Profit charitable entity, the Directors are very keen to maintain an open and democratic membership as a feature of our company ethos.
