The Company is governed by the Master who is elected for one year and is supported by the Prime and Renter Wardens and assisted by the Clerk. The Master chairs the Court which meets at least quarterly and includes, as voting members, the 5 most recently retired Masters and a number of Assistants who in some cases proceed to the Mastership.
All significant issues concerning the Company have to be considered by the Court which deputes a separate Finance and General Purposes Committee to handle the day-to-day running of its affairs. The Livery Committee is the other main operational committee with responsibility for looking after our web site and magazine, managing relationships with members and encouraging recruitment. A series of other Committees manage relationships with the wider glass industries, provide advice on succession and interview new members.
The Company has an independent Charity managed by Trustees who are members of the Livery. Quite separate from the Court the Trustees of the Charity safeguard its money and make decisions concerning its use.
