The Board of Patrons was made up of about 16 individuals. Meetings were attended by the following members of staff: the Director; Head of Communications & Development; Chief Curator; and Trust Fundraising Manager. They were also attended by Trustees and invited members. Invited members included existing members of the Patrons scheme and other individuals who had a close relationship to the Gallery.
Between 2000 and 2002 the Board of Patrons met four times a year.
Papers taken to meetings routinely included a report from the Head of Development; lists of Patron scheme members; lists of new approaches and renewals.
