Bond’s board members currently consist of 10 trustees, including four honorary officers (a chair, two vice chairs and a treasurer).

Trustees are generally elected from within the membership, but up to four trustees may be co-opted by the board to ensure the right mix of skills and experience. Currently, there is one co-opted trustee, the treasurer.

Trustees serve a three-year term, and can be re-elected for a maximum of two terms. The board sets the strategy for Bond, and the implementation is delegated to the staff team.
