Meet the Team!
SCM is a charity, governed by a body made up of SCM members – that is, students and recent graduates. This body is called General Council.
General Council is the group that makes sure that all of the different parts of the movement fit together, representing the members of SCM and influencing areas of SCM’s work. Some members of General Council are also the trustees of SCM.
Members of GC are elected by the membership of SCM at the Annual General Meeting and serve for a two year term.
Decisions are made by GC in the following areas:
- Setting the strategic plan
- Recruiting and managing staff
- Setting budgets and monitoring finances
- Working with national and global partners
- Creating policy
The day to day running of SCM is delegated to a small staff team based in Birmingham. Staff work to support local groups, chaplaincies and Link Churches by offering training and providing resources. The staff team also fundraise to support the work of the movement and look after the day to day administration of the charity.
