Since 1985 CHE has been run entirely by volunteers. CHE's Annual Conference is the supreme governing body of CHE. All members are entitled to attend, and all affiliated organisations are entitled to be represented.
Motions passed at recent Conferences are summarised on our Conference Decisions page.
The Executive Committee (EC), elected by the membership, is responsible for the day-to-day running of CHE. Half the places on the EC become vacant each year, so that members normally serve for two years after being elected. The EC elects the Secretary, Treasurer, and other Officers, and appoints the Trustees. See our 2019 Annual Report for the lists of EC members, Trustees, etc. at the end of 2019.
With no new candidates coming forward after the 2019 Conference, the existing EC members continued in office. In the special cirumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic there was no Conference, and therefore no election, in 2020. More recently Peter Burman has been appointed secretary.
