Blesma Member Trustee Vacancy
Blesma is currently looking for a committed, energetic and innovative member to join the Board of Trustees in 2022 and help set the strategic direction for our Association.
Trustees have independent control over, and legal responsibility for, a charity’s management and administration.
- Ensure the charity is carrying out its purposes for the public benefit
- Comply with the charity’s governing document and the law
- Act in the charity’s best interests
- Manage the charity’s resources responsibly
- Act with reasonable care and skill
- Ensure the charity is accountable
Blesma’s rules state that the Board should consist of at least 50% Member trustees, in order to ensure that Members’ experiences and views inform their vital work.
Trustees are expected to attend four Boards, a Board awayday and our Annual General Meeting each year. The position is voluntary, although expenses are paid.
