The HTA Council plays an important role in the governance of the HTA and helps ensure the views of members are heard and reflected in decisions of the Board.

The HTA Council meets three times a year, usually in March, May and in the autumn, and is chaired by the HTA President.  Each branch or region of the HTA has a place on the council and regional representatives also act as contact points for members in their area in addition to the HTA Regional Business Managers.
