Directors and Officers

The Board of (Non-Executive) Directors with acupuncture physiotherapy experience are drawn from within the membership of AACP and those with other experience from outside. Directors receive an emolument of £300 per Board Meeting in recognition of the time taken from their normal jobs.

The Board is supported by a Chief Executive Officer (CEO), an Accountant, an Auditor (Azets, Peterborough). The Accountant and Auditor are paid for work done at standard commercial rates.

Governance ensures that AACP Board Members are bound by a Code of Conduct that specifically requires them to declare if they have a personal interest in any matter under discussion by the Board. Directors are excluded from voting on any issue in which they may have a personal interest. Members of the Board of Directors and other officers are the following:

Jon Hobbs - Chair
