Governance & Organisation

The trustees usually meet quarterly, and, in addition, there is an Annual General Meeting. Beside the full trustee meetings, there are several sub committees (both formal and informal) to enable the operation of the Society. The main ones are the show committee, Rutland Showground Ltd and the operations committee. These committees will generally meet monthly or as required. In order to ensure strong governance the Trustees have set up an Oversight Committee to oversee the performance of the CEO in his role.

The trustees are responsible for maintaining proper accounting records which disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the charity and enable them to ensure that the financial statements comply with the Charities Act 2011, the Charities (Accounts and Reports) Regulations 2008 and the provisions of the trust deed. They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the charity and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.
