As a learned Society, we are governed by our Council and rely on our committees and working parties (all of whom are committed volunteers) to guide and work closely with our team of experienced staff.
Trustees help inspire, set and maintain the charity’s vision, mission and values, and Trustees who serve as Ordinary Members of Council do so for a three year term of office. Trustees attend Council meetings in order to help to develop the HIS strategy, and ensure compliance and accountability for finances, legal and governmental obligations are met. Previous experience in a Trustee role is not essential, as a full induction will take place.
Details of the current HIS Committees and Terms of Reference can be found here.
