Our Board of Directors - trusted to lead

Governance is the systems and processes concerned with ensuring the overall direction, effectiveness, supervision and accountability of our organisation.

The Board of Directors is Welsh Athletics’ key decision-making body.  In addition to making decisions, the Board also provides leadership, takes account of the stakeholders’ interests and is accountable both for its own decisions and the actions of Welsh Athletics as a whole.
