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 four formal sub committees to the Board: Audit (pdf 40kb), Remuneration (pdf 27kb) and Nomination (pdf 33kb) and Finance and Contracts (pdf 29kb). We also publish the expenses and register of interests of the Board of Trustees.
