Management

Trustees

The Trust is managed by a Council of Management which meets quarterly and at other times as necessary. The Council of Management comprises trustees, officers and other members with specific responsibilities. Trustees are appointed to serve for three years and may be re-elected for a second term. The Council of Management elects the chairman. Committees responsible for different aspects of the Trust's work report to the Council of Management and Trustees are usually involved in one or more of the committees.
