Board, committees and advisory groups

Our Trustees and Advisory Groups ensure CIEH continues to serve its members and the public.

Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees ensures the good governance of CIEH, and that it meets its charter, charitable and legal obligations.

With the addition of the Chief Executive, Anne Godfrey, as a member, it also acts as the Board of CIEH Limited, CIEH’s trading body.

There are six trustees elected by CIEH members, up to six appointed by the Board, and the President (also appointed by the Board).
