The Appian Trading Board was set up as part of the new structure agreed by Council in February 2010.
Formed in 2004 the trading subsidiary was established to reduce the risk of the Institution unintentionally trading outside its permitted area and becoming liable for tax, to reduce the danger of ‘riskier’ activities undermining the core work of the Institution, and to enable the Institution to undertake activities outside of its charitable objects to generate funds to be used to support of the work of the charity. In the new structure the Board has an enhanced role in actively managing the Institution’s commercial activities.
The terms of reference for the Appian Trading Board are:
1. To have a strategic oversight of the commercial opportunities for the Institution
2. To agree and oversee the delivery of the centrally organised social and technical events programme
3. To maximise income and sponsorship opportunities
4. To manage and monitor the effective delivery of strategies for maximising income from room lettings and other non-charitable activities

The Audit Committee’s role is to provide reassurance to the Directors/Trustees that the Institution, including its trading subsidiary (Appian Trading), is being operated in accordance with best practice, within the law, with financial probity, and in accordance with the requirements of relevant regulators.
The Audit Committee reports to the Board of Trustees and is required to make at least one formal report each year. Whilst responsible to the Trustees the Audit Committee is essentially outside the formal reporting structure (i.e. it determines its own work plan, and is free to comment on the work of the Council, Trustees or staff as it thinks fit). The Audit Committee’s reports, while addressed to the Trustees, will also be made available to the Council of the Institution for discussion.
Membership: Six current or former members of the Council of the Institution and a Vice President, ex officio. The quorum is three (excluding ex officio members). The maximum term of office for members of the Audit Committee is six years.
The group has the power to co-opt specialist help as required (for example, personnel or finance advisers from other organisations).
