Meet our Executive Board
The Arts Council is run by an Executive Board, as well as National and Area Councils. We also have a number of Directors responsible for different areas of the organisation.
Our current structure came into operation on 1 July 2013. The changes were made as a result of the Government's requirement that we reduce our administrative costs, as part of our settlement for 2011–15.
Making savings on this scale required a major restructure, substantial reduction in staff numbers and new ways of working. In shaping this new structure we were guided by the principle of remaining one national organisation with a local presence, able to continue to deliver our 10-year strategy.
