ICES Governance

The institution operates with a complement of staff and dedicated volunteers. Members are encouraged to take part in the future development of the institution. This is done through a series of core committees and panels that meet throughout the year. The chief executive Bill Pryke and president David Loosemore head the task of steering the institution’s core committees to develop and implement institution policy. They also work alongside the directors of SURCO, the information business of ICES, to oversee its commercial activities.

ICES activities are legally governed in accordance with:

  • Royal charter of incorporation
  • The guidelines of the Charity Commission

by the Council of Management (board of trustees) through the following:

  • Delegation of duties to officers and committees
  • Maintenance of a risk register
  • Financial accounts and audit report
  • Annual report to the Charity Commission and members
