The SWA is governed by a Council of 16 members, elected at its Annual General Meeting.
The Council appoints a number of committees to assist and advise it on different aspects of its work; it sets the strategic direction and agrees the overall policy of the SWA.
By drawing its members from chief executives and other senior figures, in companies of all sizes, the Council reflects the interests of all SWA members.
