The Board and our Governance
Think Active is led by its Board of Trustees. The Board sets Think Active’s strategic direction, and is the organisation’s ultimate decision-making body.
The Board is made up of between seven and twelve members, who serve on a voluntary basis, receiving no remuneration (other than reasonable expenses). These Board members bring a wide-ranging set of skills, experience and knowledge, ensuring that the organisation is governed effectively. All Board members complete a Declaration of Good Character and sign up to a Trustee Code of Conduct
