Organisational structure

Find out how the Chartered Institute of Horticulture is structured

As a registered charity, with charity number 1159140, we are required by the Charity Commission to have a council of trustees. Our trustees are therefore responsible for making the strategic decisions that define who we are and what we do and make up part of our organisational structure.

The CIH Management board members over see the making of day to day decisions. These may in turn be forwarded to our council of trustees for discussion.

Members can find contact details for all CIH officers in their members area.
