Board of Directors

RSGB Board meetingThe RSGB Board plays an important role in the strategic direction of the Society.

The Board comprises the President, four directly elected members and three members identified by the Nominations Committee—and endorsed by the membership.

They are always keen to talk to Members at events, so look out for them!

The Honorary Treasurer, Company Secretary, General Manager and other Advisors are not Directors, but are in attendance at Board meetings.

Liaison roles

Each Director oversees a Strategic priority and has a Liaison role between the Board and aspects of the Society’s work, as listed here.


Strategy 2022 identified eight priorities: Growth, Spectrum, Participation, Research, Diversity, Membership, Recognition and Organisation. The Board believes that the best way to ensure progress in all the priorities is for one Board member to take the lead for each priority. This ensures that decisions taken by the Board will have been reviewed for their full strategic potential.

We want to encourage initiatives which bring together the expertise of our Committees, Honorary Officers and Regional Teams, while ensuring that what we do across the organisation addresses our Strategic Priorities. By doing this we will ensure that the considerable time and effort given by all our volunteers will be amplified for the future benefit of amateur radio as a whole.

Liaison roles

The role of the liaison member is to provide Board-level oversight of the work of the committee.

They will ensure that issues raised by the committee are considered by the Board, and that relevant Board policies and decisions are communicated to the Committee Chair.

In the event of a complaint about a committee, the liaison member will investigate on behalf of the Board.
