Edinburgh Napier Students' Association was established under the University Charter on 1 April 1993.
The management of the Association is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees. The Board is responsible for the overall governance, setting the strategy and direction of the Association. The Board of Trustees and Student Executive receive an induction into their legal and administrative responsibilities; they are familiar with the work of the Association and the Board received bespoke training on trusteeship and its responsibilities from Scott Moncrieff.
The Board meets regularly with the Head of ENSA to review the charity’s performance, its administration, and to discuss and decide on the issues arising.
