We are a member focused organisation. Funded by a mix of membership subscriptions and commercially generated revenue, we aim to be transparent in our affairs. Our Board, which meets on average four times a year, sets our direction and approves major spends. The Board consists of a principal from each of our nine English regions, a maximum of seven governors and further members who represent the interests of our varied member colleges. Each year our members elect a serving college principal to be our President. He/she acts as an ambassador for the sector as well as the organisation, and holds the role for a year.
AoC is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee with a national office in London and regional offices around the country. AoC Charitable Trust and our commercial subsidiary, AoC Services, are also based in London.
