The Scottish FA, at its 2011 Annual General Meeting, revolutionised the governance and structures of Scottish football by implementing a series of historic improvements.
The Board is now complemented by two operational boards created to provide greater focus in the affairs of the Professional and Non Professional game.
The main Board consists of seven members: the Office Bearers (Stewart Regan, Chief Executive; Campbell Ogilvie, President; Alan McRae, First Vice-President, and Rod Petrie, Second Vice-President), plus Ralph Topping (SPL), Tom Johnston (Junior FA) and Barrie Jackson, the Scottish FA’s first-ever independent non-executive director.
The Board will focus on matters of corporate strategy and top-line decision-making and, in 2015, will have an additional independent non-executive director to replace the Second Vice-President role.
They are supplemented by the two operational Professional and Non Professional Boards, the former consisting of nine members and the latter 11 representatives of their respective parts of the game.
