NASS is keen that its Council of Management (our Board of Trustees) reflects the whole of the diverse group of people that we serve.
As most people know, the average age of onset of AS is 24 and we would love to encourage someone from this younger age group to be a representative on the NASS Council of Management. However, any NASS Member can put themselves up for election.
If you are interested please email Jill Hamilton for more details and a nomination form. Closing date for applications is 10 May 2017. Members will be able to vote for new trustees at our AGM on 17 June.You must be a fully paid up NASS Member to vote as per the charity’s constitution.
You would be expected to attend about 4 trustee meetings per year – usually two in London, one in Bath and the other takes place before the beginning of Members’ Day. The role of a trustee is to work with the rest of the board and the Chief Executive to put together a strong and deliverable strategic plan, have input into current projects and vote on governance issues such as the budget and constitution.
