AoC supports college governors’ and governance professionals' representative councils in their work to develop excellence in governance.

AoC believes that governors should be empowered to have a strong voice so they can champion and promote their colleges, and also recognises the crucial role that governance professionals play in supporting and advising governors.

In 2008, AoC established it's National Chairs' Council to speak on behalf of governors and provide a forum for discussion with partner organisations. AoC supports the National Governance Professionals' Group (NGPG) in its work to represent the views of governance professionals and influence college governance.
