The current Management Committee is made up of the founder members of the Society. We will continue to hold office until the first Annual Members Meeting. At this point we are required to stand down but we may stand for re-election alongside other members of the Society if we wish.
Normally, members of the Committee hold office for three years from the date of election, and are allowed to stand for re-election at the end of their term. Members who are co-opted on to the Committee serve for one year only.

The Management Committee’s chief responsibility is to ensure that the Society fulfils its business and community objectives.

Selecting and appointing staff
Managing the Society’s financial affairs
Drawing up and managing leases
The committee is also required to produce an Annual Report for members, setting out details of the Society’s performance over the past year and its plans for the year ahead, and to report once a year to the FCA .
Members of the Management Committee are individually and collectively responsible for ensuring that the organisation is efficiently run, solvent and meets all its statutory requirements. If members believe the committee is failing in its duties, they have the right to hold them to account by calling a special general meeting.
The Committee currently consists of the following:
