Archery GB is the trading name of the Grand National Archery Society, a company limited by guarantee. We are a volunteer led organisation run for the not-for profit and sporting benefit of our membership and stakeholders. We are a member of the International Federation, World Archery.

Our Board is made up of volunteer directors from both the membership and outside the organisation and is responsible under the Articles of Association and Laws to run the company. Its primary objectives are to act as the UK governing body of sport; to encourage, promote, control and develop the sport amongst all sections of the community; and to support athletes of all abilities within the sport to achieve their potential through recognised performance pathways.

The Board meets four times a year and is supported by the Company Secretary and the minute Secretary, who are employees. It assesses its own performance annually and our governance is also reviewed independently by UK Sport and Sport England.
