Trustee Board and Governance

Our 2013-14 accounts are now available.

To find out a little more about our Trustee Board we have a some Personal Statements (April 2014 – 76 KB)  from each of the members.

YOUR TRUST NEEDS YOU ON BOARD!

Trustee nominations have closed for the forthcoming AGM but if you would like to support our work please consider becoming a Trustee for next year. Please contact Diana Clark on 01656 724100 to find out more.

The only requirements for applicants are enthusiasm and commitment to work with a team of others for the benefit of the Trust and its objectives but we do have gaps in particular areas that we would like to fill if possible.

We would very much like to extend the range of skills represented on our Board and would like to attract new Trustees with a business background.

We have gaps in our collective expertise in:

  • Membership development
  • Marketing
  • Fund raising
  • Governance
  • Programme management

So if you have an interest in, or knowledge of, any or these you would be particularly welcome. We would also like to continue to have a good geographical representation on the Board and welcome applications from all areas but especially from the east of the Trust area.

Trustees are unpaid volunteers and do not receive expenses. The commitment is to attend Board meetings (about 7-8 a year, usually on a Monday evening) and to attend some other meetings (more often at weekends) connected with the Trust’s work.

The term of appointment is for up to three years in the first instance.

Being a Trustee can be an onerous task and, at times the commitment can feel demanding, but the work is deeply rewarding and, for the most part, very enjoyable.
