01 January 2019
A warm welcome to our new GACD Action Board of Trustees.
GACD Action was recently registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with the Charity Commission for England and Wales under the charity number 1174867.
As of 1 January 2019, the Board of Trustees for GACD Action is chaired by Professor Nicholas Lemoine, and includes trustees with expertise in medical research and science funding, investments and charity management. The charity trustees for GACD Action are as follows:
- Prof Nicholas Lemoine (Chair)
- Dr Angela Hind
- Dr Lesley Sherratt
- Dr Mark Palmer
- Prof Anne Kelso
GACD Action trustees act in a voluntary role and do not receive any compensation for the work they do on behalf of GACD Action.
This Board of Trustees is accountable to the UK Charity Commission for the governance of GACD Action. The Board of Trustees works very closely with the GACD Strategy Board, which is formed by the heads of the associate member agencies of GACD – the organisations which provide the funding for GACD Action. The Strategy Board provides recommendations on topics including research funding and programmatic priorities to the Board of Trustees. The Strategy Board shall also assist the trustees by providing first-line review of the implementation and delivery of the GACD Strategic Plan.
GACD Action will continue to operate under the name GACD.
