The QARANC Association is managed by a Board of Trustees who meet on a regular basis. The General Secretary of the Association, who is also the Regimental Secretary QARANC, carries out the routine day to day administration of the Charity. The Association is bound by its governing document, the 'Constitution', and must ensure compliance with the relevant statutory and regulatory frameworks including the need to demonstrate financial propriety.

The Board has recently embarked upon a governance review and will recommend changes to bring it up to date with current charity practice and streamline the way it conducts its business. As part of this initiative, the 'Constitution' is being reviewed by the Board who will ensure that any proposed amendments will be presented to the membership before any changes are effected or implemented. Full details will be promulgated through 'The Gazette' and also 'On Line'. In addition, the policies and procedures are being reviewed to ensure they are appropriate and fit for purpose.

In addition, the Board is currently networking with other Service Charities to promote its own raison d'être. Moreover, it hopes through the benefits of collaborative working that it will maximise the advice and assistance available to those who may find themselves in need.

The Association supports a number of activities and its branches participate in various Service commemorative occasions both locally, nationally and internationally. These include a 'Turning the Pages Ceremony' that will take place in June 2014 at the QARANC plot at the National Military Arboretum and in November the ceremony will be held at the Royal Garrison Church of All Saints at Aldershot. Association members will also be present at the many events commemorating the anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War including 'Heroes at Highclere' in August 2014. In keeping with tradition, there will be Association representation at the 'Field of Remembrance' at Westminster Abbey on 6 November 2014 and the Remembrance Parade and March Past at the Cenotaph on 9 November 2014 to pay respect to and honour those who have fallen in service.

The Trustees are striving to heighten the profile of the Association and make it more accessible for both existing and prospective members. They aim to ensure it remains responsive to the needs and aspirations of the membership within the confines and constraints of the Charity 'objects'. Above all they wish to ensure the Association provides timely welfare and benevolence support when needed. The Trustees are also keen to foster 'Friendship' and to promote camaraderie and esprit de corps for those who have had the privilege of serving with Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps.
