The NNEdPro Directors report to the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee (FinARC). The FinARC comprises senior representatives drawn from the British Dietetic Association (BDA), the Global Open Data Initiative on Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) and the Society for Nutrition Education and Behaviour (SNEB) as well as an independent business advisory representative. The Strategic Advisory Committee (SAC) provides authoritative advice to the NNEdPro Directors, as well as key links to NNEdPro's key strategic partner organisations.


The FinARC and SAC are both convened during a Strategy Day that is organised at least annually (coinciding with the Annual Summit and Summer School in Cambridge). The BDA Chief Executive is the FinARC Chair and also the Ex-Officio SAC Co-Chair (along with the NNEdPro Chair). The NNEdPro Directors, President, Patron, Emeritus Advisors as well as FinARC Members are Ex-Officio SAC Members.
