Following the AGM on June 29, Phil Critchlow continued as Chair, while Mike Hally stood down as Vice-Chair and from the Board, after serving in each of the Officer roles continoursly since founding RIG in 2004.  Caroline Raphael and Connie St Louis stood for the vacant position and, in a secret ballot, Caroline Raphael was elected to serve as Vice-Chair for 2017-18.

With Sue Clark also standing down from the Board, there was an opportunity for newcomers, and indeed 13 people stood for 10 places.  The new Board was also selected by secret ballot and is shown below; we warmly welcome Chloe Straw, Peter Curran and Andrew Wilkie, all coming onto the Board for the first time.  

While most decisions of the Board are made by consensus, where a vote is necessary, it is one vote-per-director, irrespective of the size of company (the same applies in General Meetings of the membership).

The Board is now composed of representatives from the smallest companies (4 in membership band A), to the largest (4 in bands H, I and J) and a range in between (bands B, D), located across Britain.  It comprises the following officers and directors:
