In the fourteen years since the foundation of the Academy in 2000 there has never been a stronger or more diverse group of Academicians than that which exists today. With the resources drawn from this wealth of talent, ranging from the first Academicians with established positions to new young practitioners considered exceptional in their field, the Academy is rightly confident in its ability to make a substantial contribution to the Fine and Applied Arts in the South West. The Academy is truly grateful to all Trustees and Academicians who freely provide their time and expertise without reward. Their selfless and dedicated help is vital to the Academy's continued growth.

Alan Cotton, founder and former President, remains closely in touch with the Trustees. Michael Morgan, founder member, is an ever-present source of advice and help with constitutional issues. As President Emeritus and Academician Laureate respectively, they remain close to the heart of the Academy's operations. Special mention must also be made of our former Chairman Jed Falby, whose extraordinary commitment over a number of years ensured the continuation of the Academy. The Academy is also grateful to all the other long-term Academicians, whose work and continuing support is invaluable as we move into the next decade of consolidation and growth.
In a bid to simplify and streamline its operations, the Academy has reformed its structure by dispensing with two layers of central management and vesting executive authority for the day-to-day running and strategic direction of the organisation with the Board of Trustees. Under the chairmanship of Alan Fynn and with the Administrative help of Penny Keen, each Trustee, as well as fulfilling the statutory duties associated with our charitable company status, fulfils a defined role, be it financial management, exhibition organisation, publicity, fundraising, or one of a whole range of additional duties associated with our mission. Volunteer Academicians are formed into sub-committees under Trustee chairmanship for major events such as the Open Show.
