UKCOD is governed by its board of trustees. Legally, they are responsible for ensuring UKCOD complies with charity and other law. They also take responsibility for ensuring that UKCOD and mySociety carry out their states goals and aims effectively given the available resources and constraints.
All trustees give their time and expertise on a voluntary basis and are entirely un-waged. The current trustees are:
- Owen Blacker
- Owen writes software for a dot-com by day and by night works for a handful of Internet-related groups pressing for social and political change. In addition, Owen is an advisory council member for the Open Rights Group, helped found NO2ID and FaxYourMP, used to co-ordinate Stand.org.uk and has worked with MakeMyVoteCount. He can usually be found wasting what he laughably calls "free time" playing with Flickr and contributing to the Wikipedia projects, which might explain why he still hasn't got round to making himself a website.
- James Crabtree
- James is an associate editor of Open Democracy, and a civil servant at the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit. He is the author of an article entitled Civic Hacking: a new agenda for e-democracy which helped to shape the original mySociety project.
- James Cronin (Chairman of Trustees)
- James is the Chairman of UKCOD, as well as Chairman of the board of directors of mySociety Ltd. He is a technologist who has worked on the UK Internet scene since before the web was invented as developer, systems administrator, technical director or CTO of a number of top UK ISPs, service providers and media companies. James co-founded FaxYourMP, mySociety and TheyWorkForYou and has been active in numerous multi award-winning online campaigning organisations, such as the anti internet snooping bill project: Stand.org.uk. He volunteers for Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, is a founding director of the Open Rights Group and is an advisory board member of the NO2ID campaign. As a day job, James is Executive Director and Chief Architect of the leading e-commerce software as a service company, Venda, which he co-founded. He is neither James Cronin the Nobel Prize-winning physicist, nor James Cronin the founder of the salsa/jive hybrid dance Ceroc, although he has been mistaken for both. He is, however, James Cronin the co-owner of the UK's finest boutique chocolaterie, Paul A Young Fine Chocolates, based in Islington, which he is exceptionally proud of.
