The Board of Trustees are the guardians of the British Council’s purpose and are ultimately accountable for the organisation.
Chaired by Sir Vernon Ellis, they hold the Executive Board responsible for the organisation’s performance, strategy and policy. The trustees meet six times a year and edited minutes of their meetings are available to the public.
There are five formal sub committees to the Board: Audit and Finance (pdf 36kb), Risk (pdf 35kb), Remuneration (pdf 43kb) and Nominations (pdf 33kb) and Contracts (pdf 26kb). We also publish the register of interests of the Board of Trustees.
