The Advisory Council comprises of 20 elected members, including six members of Council, the eleven Board of Trustees, the Secretaries of the Scottish Section and the Irish Section and Student Section Chair. Advisory Council members provide advice, critique, ideas and insight for Trustees to help underpin the evidence required to inform the proposals and subsequent decisions of Trustees, in support of the development and delivery of strategy, policy and activity. In addition, Advisory Council members identify future priorities and opportunities under the strategic plan, facilitate communication and access to the membership, stakeholders, external networks and potential partners, and support promotion of Society activities and help raise its profile.
