The Brigade is a charity registered as a limited company. The governing body, which is drawn from within and without the Brigade, is the Brigade Council whose members are the trustees. It meets three times a year and is responsible for strategic planning, overseeing the Brigade's finances, appointing salaried staff and approving changes to the Brigade Rules. The Brigade Council is chaired by the Governor who is the de facto chair of the trustees.
