How we work

Our Association is directed by the Steering committee, which consists of between 10 and 15 people. In order for any decisions taken by the Committee to be valid, a meeting must have present a minimum of five people or one third of the committee, whichever is the greater.

The Steering committee meets four times a year, primarily to plan visits, but also to consider the level of the subscription to the Association; to decide how much of our surplus money should be given to the National Trust, and for which project; and for other issues, such as our presence on the world wide web, cooperation with other heritage organisations and advertising our Association.

With the exception of the visits, the other issues find their way on to the agenda of the Annual General Meeting, when you, the members, endorse our decisions or decide collectively.

Any member of the Association may volunteer for membership of the Steering committee.
