Election of Trustees 2019
The Board of Trustees has responsibility for making sure the Minster Centre delivers its charitable objectives and deciding overall how the charity is run. They take an overview of our strategic direction, finances and operations. The Board meets at least 4 times a year on Friday evenings. There is also at least one full day meeting usually on a Saturday in June.
Additional work on specialist working groups or committees may also be undertaken, depending on Trustees’ personal interests, experience and availability. Trustees normally serve for a term of three years in the first instance but can stand for re-election up to a maximum of nine years.
Under the provisions of our governing document the Board can consist of a minimum of 7 trustees and a maximum of 14 made up of 11 independent Trustees (not staff or students) elected by Minster Centre Alumni, a member of staff elected by the staff, and a student on a course at The Minster Centre extending over more than one year elected by students attending a course at The Minster Centre extending over more than one year, and the Director. Staff and student trustees were elected last year and are not due for re-election.
