Council is the governing body of the Society and comprises the Officers of the Society and elected Ordinary Members of Council and meets three times a year – in February, June, and October. Council is supported by a number of standing committees that have delegated authority to carry out work within a remit that is approved by Council.
Memorandum and Articles of Association (MAA) is the statutory instrument that governs the operation of the BSAC. The MAA can only be amended with the approval of the Charity Commission.
The Regulations, that can be amended by Council, further define the MAA and establish operational procedures for BSAC business.
The Register of Interests offers provisions for members, throughout the submission of transparency declarations and voluntary or requested withdrawal from meetings, to ensure that they are not influenced, or appearing to be influenced, by their private interests in the execution of their duties on behalf of the Society. The BSAC Register of Interests is regularly updated and a copy can be provided on receipt of a written request to the Chief Executive Officer.
