I am responsible for both administration and finance within the AGI. The former covers organisational matters and generally delivering services to our members as effectively as possible. The latter includes financial controls, production of management accounts, monitoring budgets and ensuring properly-audited statutory accounts. I represent AGI on various committees and liaise as best I can with AGI Council and our various membership groups. Above all, it is my role to ensure that the AGI, as a not-for-profit organisation pursues its objectives within a framework of managed risk and within set budgets.
