Arts Council non–executives appointed

Arts Council England’s (ACE) non-executive governance structure has now been finalised. Five non-executive directors with backgrounds in charity governance, philanthropy and organisational change have been appointed to the National Council which is responsible for governance of ACE. As part of its slimmed down regional structure, five Area Councils have been created (North, Midlands, London, South East, South West). These will provide input on strategy, assess the impact of funding decisions and evaluate the particular challenges and opportunities for artist and organisations in each area. Each of the Area Councils will offer advice to National Council in terms of locally and nationally significant issues and the Chair of each Council is a member of National Council.
