About > UHR Executive


The Executive Committee, including the Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, meets every four months to formulate policy, plan activities and give strategic direction to the association. UHR is assisted by an Executive Director. We encourage sharing of information, contacts and good practice so please get in touch.
