Our board of directors is made up only of people with learning disabilities. Local members elect directors who represent them on our National Board.
Local groups highlight issues that their elected representative then takes to the Board. These issues often influence the campaigns and work of the organisation.
Directors are elected by the members in each area of Scotland. There are different numbers of director places in each area. This is because some areas have more members than others.
Directors sit on the Board for three years and then they stand down. They can stay on the Board if the members vote them back on. Usually, there is a lot of competition for the Director places.
The board gets advice and support from the company secretary.
