RICE is governed by a board of trustees who elect a chair and nominate two deputy chairs. The board is collectively responsible for governance of RICE, for developing our strategic direction, and they have oversight of all activities. They ensure we operate in line with our charitable objects and for public benefit, and that we meet our financial and legal obligations, and both manage and mitigate risk. The board meets four times a year.
There are three sub-committees made up of trustees which report to the board. They are:
• Finance and Audit Committee which meets four times a year and is chaired by a financial trustee. The committee oversees RICE’s financial position and fundraising activities and makes recommendations as needed to the Board
• Care and Research Governance Committee which meets twice a year and is chaired by a practicing clinical trustee. The committee oversees RICE’s clinical and research activities and makes recommendations as needed to the board
• Remuneration Committee which meets once a year and is chaired by the Chair of the Board. All trustees are involved in the committee which agrees any pay awards due and any changes to agreed pay and pension structures
Trustees also hold an annual strategic meeting which provides an opportunity for trustees and the senior management team to review progress against the strategy and discuss future plans and activities.
