This year, Trustees’ Week falls between the 13th and 17th November. Trustees play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the work of charities. Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
The average trustee in England and Wales is 59 years old. There are many young trustees too with some 86,000 trustee positions held by 16-34 year old.
WSMS currently has 7 elected trustees, with various skillsets to offer. There might be an opportunity for someone with Marketing and/or Fundraising experience to join our board. If you think that such a volunteering role might interest you, do feel free to call Nick (Service Co-ordinator) on 01403 258900. Trustees meet quarterly in Jan, April, July and October plus the AGM in September. Between times they are engaged in various projects and activities. Currently they are working on preparing for the new General Data Protection Regulation (May 2018), reviewing our Risk Register and attending various networking events.
