Directors are appointed from Full Member organisations and nominations are reviewed against a skills matrix of Directors to ensure that they are suitable to fill any vacancies on the Board. 
The term of office of a Director is a maximum of two terms of three years (or 6 years) and at every AGM, one third of Directors are subject to retirement and will do so by rotation.   Membership of the Board comprises of six to twelve Directors including the Chair and one Vice Chair (except in the period to the close of the AGM 2014 when the number of Directors will be thirteen).

The Board meets on a quarterly basis to discuss governance issues, the business and performance of the organisation, and to ensure Members needs are met.
