At the AGM we will notify members of the results of trustee elections for 2017. Details and papers for process of electing trustees to The Society’s Board are below.
If you are a member and need more information on voting at the AGM please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0207 939 0780.
The Trustees set the strategic direction of The Society and are legally responsible for the governance of the charity. The Board of trustees delegate day to day decision making and responsibility to the Chief Executive, but are responsible for ensuring the strategy is carried out and finances are spent appropriately. The Society will only be able to meet the needs of its members if we can continue to attract enthusiastic and capable trustees. The Society has three types of Trustee:
- Ordinary trustees (seven elected trustees)
- One Honorary Chairman (appointed by the Board of trustees)
- Up to four Co-opted trustees (recruited often for a specific role but not elected).
All members of The Society (i.e. those aged 16 or over) have a say in choosing the Ordinary Trustees.
There is one seat available for election in 2017. One current Ordinary trustee will be standing for re-election. We are seeking nominations from members prepared to stand for a fixed term of 3 years with the possibility of a further 3 year term.
The sole explicit requirement to be a trustee of The Society is to be a member of The Society, to be supportive of our mission and strategic plan. Beyond that, we need a breadth of skills and experience across our trustees, but each individual trustee will bring his or her own abilities; there is space for some trustees who bring relatively little experience but a strong desire to learn.
