We will soon become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with a new management structure.

A Board of Trustees governs the Institution and the staff manage its day-to-day activities.

  • Library, Reserach and Publication Committee
  • Project and Programme Committee
  • Finance, HR and IT Committee
  • Housekeeping Committee

12 Trustees will be elected at the AGM to serve as the first Board of Trustees of the Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

Further information on becoming a Trustee or a coopted member of a committee is available from the Assistant Secretary.
