The Business Integrated Governance Community Interest Company (and previously the Core P3M Data Club CIC) relies on volunteers to generate material, grow and operate.

Many have helped, some have contributed significantly in some way. However, only a few have provided either sustained contribution or helped in such a way as to have enabled the CIC.

The following people have, in the opinion of the BIG CIC, provided such a ‘founding’ contribution:
