In addition, the Council of Governors fulfills a number of formal functions such as the appointment of external auditors. The Council of Governors may, at a General Meeting, appoint or remove the Chairman and the other Non-Executive Directors of the Trust, although the decision to remove a Non-Executive Director would require the support of three-quarters of the Council of Governors.
