SGSAH Board Members

The remit of the SGSAH Board is to:

  • Oversee SGSAH’s strategy & operations;

  • Approve & where appropriate make changes to the SGSAH governance structure;

  • Receive reports from the SGSAH Executive & officers on SGSAH finance & operations;

  • Act as final arbiters in the resolution of any conflict escalated to it by the SGSAH Executive Committee.

The Chair of the SGSAH Board rotates between the Universities of Edinburgh & Glasgow on 1 January each year, mirroring the arrangement for the SGSAH Executive Committee so that if the University of Edinburgh holds the Chair of the Board, the University of Glasgow holds the Chair of the Executive Committee.  As of 1 January 2016 the University of Glasgow holds the Chair of the SGSAH Board.
The Board normally meets in October each year.
