Our governance structure

The centre consists of two boards:

The Advisory Board advises the centre on strategic issues and facilitates external engagement relating to the performance and sustainability of the centre. It performs this role by contributing to the strategic management of the centre and by drawing on members' experience in industry for the benefit of the centre. The board will support and further the centre's mission, executive education and linkages with industry and government relevant to the centre.

The Governing Board oversees centre activities and has responsibility for its annual business plan (including budget, audit, financial management and reporting). It ensures compliance with University regulations and policies. The board also provides advice as needed on business development, IT infrastructure, infrastructure management, operating resource allocation and sustainability.

The Governing Board approves the Annual Statements presented by the Executive Director, after which the Annual Statement is submitted to the University (to Financial Services and the Senate Finance and Audit Committee) and the Serpentine Foundation. The Governing Board is authorised to obtain outside legal or other professional advice and to secure the attendance of external advisers with relevant experience and expertise if it considers this necessary, after consultation with the Chairman and the Executive Director.
