Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for working with Benenden's senior management to set the strategic direction of the Society, monitoring and oversight of operational activity and compliance with current legislation including our own Rulebook and propositions passed at Conference.

Operational responsibility for the conduct of the Society’s business is delegated to the Chief Executive, so it is not the responsibility of the non-executive Board members to manage the Society, but it is their responsibility to hold accountable and monitor those tasked with doing so.

Who is on the Board of Directors?

The Board comprises:

  • Six Branch-nominated non-executive members, nominated by their branch at a branch meeting and elected at Conference
  • Six Independent non-executive members nominated by the Board and elected at Conference
  • Two Executive members, who are senior employees of Benenden

The Chairman is one of the Independent non-executive Board members.
