Board and Committees

Board and Committees

UKCISA is run by a Board of Trustees, to which two committees report.  Committee members are mainly representatives of member organisations and sector bodies.  We rely on active participation of members of the Board and committees to create an informed debate around policy issues and we encourage experienced staff in a range of roles from all sectors to put themselves forward for election or co-option.  (Vacancies are usually announced in May in our e-news to members.)

Our Board of Trustees consists of

  • nine elected members
  • six members co-opted by the Board to ensure an appropriate balance of skills, interest groups and expertise.
  • The Chair of the Board and the Honorary Treasurer

Several sector and representative bodies have observer status to ensure close collaboration with bodies with similar aims and interests and key stakeholders.

The Board, Finance and General Purposes (F+GP) and the Service and Representation (S+R) committees meet two to four times each year to agree overall strategy, financial and staffing issues and UKCISA's position on key aspects of government, sector and membership policy. The current membership is listed below.
