We are a development organisation, owned by our members, and provide a range of specialist services that aren't available elsewhere, to assist them in developing their people and their businesses. Get in touch to find out how we can help you.
The success of every co‑op depends on how well its directors carry out their roles and responsibilities. SAOS’s Board has a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as an ambitious vision for our future.
In addition to the Board, we also have a Council, comprising co‑op members from all sectors, and other key industry bodies, which gives us another level of governance and keeps us in touch with wider industry issues.
SAOS, like all co‑ops, is bound by a set of Rules that govern how our co‑op is run. In addition to these, Members of SAOS follow a Board and Council Charter. You can find out more on both these levels of Governance here.
