As a company limited by guarantee, LUPC is led by a Board made up of senior directors drawn from Members of the consortium. All Board Members are democratically elected by the Membership with just one exception – LUPC's full-time Director, Andy Davies, who is accountable to the Board.

The Board is responsible for the strategic leadership and direction of the consortium. It elects the Chair and Deputy Chair, appoints the Director, sets the budget, publishes its Annual Report and Accounts and executes all other duties and responsibilities commensurate with directing the company.

The Board meets four times annually and delegates day-to-day management responsibility to the Director and decisions as to operational priorities to LUPC’s Executive Committee.
