The Society of Homeopaths’ Board of Directors is made up of six practitioner members and three lay member representatives. The role of the Board is one of governance, setting the strategic direction for the organisation, agreeing and developing plans and procedures necessary to carry out the agreed objectives whilst leaving the management of the organisation to the staff. There is also a Professional Standards sub committee with Director involvement. Democracy is the central pillar of the Society and all individual Registered members are eligible to vote in the election for members to the board. Lay member representation on the board and committee ensures that the Society’s guidelines, policies and procedures are transparent, fair and are in the public interest. Society Board members also abide by the Directors Code of Conduct and Board Principles documents. At every board meeting of the Society each board member is required to declare any conflicts of interest and every year the Society reviews its governance practices and reserves policy.
To protect the integrity of the organisation’s decision-making process, to enable our stakeholders to have confidence in our integrity, and to protect the integrity and reputation of Society personnel Board members, staff and long term consultants all adhere to our conflicts of interest policy.
