Banteay Srei’s Board is made up of six voluntary members.
The Board delegates management of the organisation to the Director, but the Board Members remain ultimately responsible for the affairs of the charity, ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering appropriate outcomes in terms of public benefit.
