Council and Committees

Our Council, of up to 12 members, focuses on strategic policy issues, major matters of substance and significance and maintaining oversight of our activities. Committees have been established to advise Council on particular areas of work.

We hold around eight Council meetings per calendar year. We also follow a cycle of visits to institutions and host a number of committee meetings and events.
