As The London Printworks Trust is a registered Charity the role of the Board of Trustees is vital. Trustees ensure that the organisation works strategically and according to the governing document to fulfil its charitable objects and to ensure financial solvency. To do this a Trustee will demonstrate Nolan’s 7 principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. Trustees do not receive financial reward for their services to the organisation and give generously of their time and expertise.
Over the last 21 years The London Printworks Trust has been fortunate to have received support from a number of extremely talented skilled individuals as Trustees. A Trustee is usually appointed at the Annual General Meeting and this year we marked the end of one business form by a complete change of Board members. This year we welcomed Liz O’Sullivan, Michael Armstrong and Daniel Gayle who were elected to take the organisation into a new future. They will be supported by re-elected Rachel Smart (Chair) and Andy Rothery (Treasurer). We thanked retiring or resigning Board members James Barrett, Carole Collet, Kate Hinds and Judy Hague, Andy Rothery and Rachel Smart for their time, energy and skills.
The new Board will be meeting every six weeks over the next year, and the 2011/12 AGM will be held in September.
We are always interested in talking with people who are interested in supporting our work by becoming a Trustee.
