Council & Governance

Dedicated Professionals and Council Members

Run by a small team of dedicated professionals, and governed by a council of members, GIMA is funded by membership subscriptions and services.

The GIMA council is made up of volunteer representatives from member companies, who meet several times a year to ensure the association continues to deliver value for money for its members and focuses on industry relevant initiatives.

New council members are voted in by the membership, together with a number of key honorary roles during the AGM held in the Spring each year. If you are interested in becoming a GIMA council member or would like to receive a copy of our Articles of Association, please contact the GIMA office.
