Board of Directors 2019 -2020

No Board Directors, including the Chairman, ever receive any form of payment for their time.

All of our Directors are nominated annually from within the local business and stakeholder community. They are selected to ensure balanced representation from sectors of our levy payers and for the individual skills they offer. The Board of Directors is duly elected by show of hands at our Annual General Meeting. The current Board were voted in on the meeting held on the 17th November 2019.  Read more about each Director here
