The NNEdPro Directors report to the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee (FinARC). The FinARC comprises a small subset of key representatives drawn from the Strategic Advisory Committee (SAC). The 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 in Cambridge). The BDA Chief Executive is the FinARC Chair and also the Ex-Officio SAC Co-Chair (along with the NNEdPro Chair).
