Our Governance

Our Governance

The Society is governed by:
Board of Trustees

The BCS Board of Trustees meets regularly to review the Society's activities highlighting the risks the organisation is exposed to and steps taken to manage those risks.

Recruitment: BCS recruits Trustees to its Board by advertising open positions to its members for election. The Non-Executive Trustees are appointed to the Board. They are generally selected following recommendation and contact with existing Board members through formal process on the basis of expertise sought by the Board and appropriate skills held and suitability of applicants. The Board has the power to appoint additional members at its discretion.

BCS Executive

The BCS Executive meets regularly and reviews both financial and operational procedures annually to ensure the Society will be able to operate into the foreseeable future.

Recruitment: Members of the Executive are elected by members of the Society through the annual BCS elections process. Members of the Executive are also members of the Board (which includes five non executive Trustees).

BCS Council
In addition to these two governing structures, BCS has a Council that meets three times a year and includes elected members and representatives from our Affiliated Societies, Royal College of Physicians, British Heart Foundation, and from each of the Countries of the UK.
