The old system under which membership of BASG was confined to governors of boards that had actively joined and paid a subscription has ceased. Under our new constitution all ‘governors’ – including members of academy and MAT boards, and of local governance committees within MATs, are automatically counted as members. A governor who does not wish to be a member may of course withdraw.

By reducing our costs to a minimum we aim to fund ourselves in future by voluntary contribution rather than mandatory subscription.
