Governance consultation

Published: 18th October 2020

Trustees are keen to hear Members’ views on proposed changes to the Trust’s Articles of Association, with consultation open till 18 Dec 2020

The Articles of Association are the Trust’s key governance document, detailing a range of matters including its charitable purposes; what powers it has to achieve these; Trustee appointments and their powers; Members and their rights; and how Trustee and Member meetings are conducted.

Trustees are proposing revised Articles (see download below) to reflect changes in company and charity law and to incorporate current good practice.

Members are invited to respond before 18 December 2020* as follows:

A report outlining Members’ views will be shared in the new year. Trustees will then review the draft Articles in light of Members’ views before putting them forward for formal consideration in 2021.

* The 30 November deadline for responses published in the Trust's Journal has been extended
