Government Structure

UNA-UK is governed by a Board of Directors, which is currently chaired by Sir Jeremy Greenstock (former UK Ambassador to the United Nations). The Board is supported by two sub-committees: the Management & Finance Sub-Committee and the Policy Advisory Sub-Committee.

In the interest of good governance, the Board of Directors has established an Audit Committee.
