The role of the Board
The role of the Board is to provide strategic vision, direction and leadership to support the financial and operational stability needed to advance RFUK’s mission and to promote the organisation’s continued effectiveness.
The Board convenes at least four times per calendar year and uses Committees to advise and decide on specific aspects of RFUK’s operations to control particular activities on its behalf.
Current Committees are:
- Nominations Committee
- People Committee
- Finance, Risk and Compliance Committee
Although decision-making may be delegated to the Committees, the Board collectively retains ultimate responsibility for all decisions taken.
The Board delegates day-to-day management activities to the Executive Director (ED), who in turn delegates some aspects of organisational management to the Senior Management Team (SMT) and other staff.
