AOC (Association of Chairs)

AOC are an independent association of Chairs of social purpose and not-for-profit organisations formed in order to help Chairs with their unique task: leading the board in delivering the organisation’s aims.

Who we are

We are forward thinking and aim to deliver value to our members by providing information, commissioning research, peer support, networking and developing standards of best practice in governance that are relevant to Chairs of a wide range of organisations – large or small, local or national, working in different fields. As an independent association with charitable status we represent Chairs in the Third Sector across England and Wales.

We champion your role as a Chair of a charity or non-profit organisation. We highlight the importance of the role of Chairs to key decision-makers for example by responding to policy initiatives and consultations.
