The policies and direction of the SMN, are the responsibility of a Board of up to twelve Directors.

The directors are chosen by being recommended by members of the SMN at their members’ AGM, which takes place at the Annual Gathering in July. The Board then ratifies new directors. The SMN is a charity which was founded in 1973, and then became a charitable company limited by guarantee, at the beginning of 2004.
