The Court of Assistants
The Company is run by a 'Court of Assistants' (effectively the Company's Management Board), chaired by the Master and supported by three Wardens (Senior Warden, Middle Warden and Junior Warden). The Wardens are elected annually from within the Court and serve for a period of one year, succeeding each other. When a Senior Warden complete their term, they succeed the Master for the next year.
The Court consists of The Master and Wardens, key officers such as the Honorary Treasurer, Sponsoring Alderman and Chair of the Charitable Trust, the five Immediate Past Masters and up to a maximum of 20 Court Assistants, who are elected annually from the Freemen of the Company.
The Court meets at least five times a year to discuss Company matters which include fundraising activities, membership applications, events and other matters of the day.
The Company employs a Clerk, appointed by the Court, who is the Company's Chief Executive Officer.
