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 (Rawlinsons, Peterborough) and a Company Secretary. The Accountant, Auditor and Company Secretary 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.
