The Trustees of World Heritage UK are by necessity, closely involved in both planning and undertaking the work which is needed to make an effective and vibrant organisation.
The position is voluntary but reasonable expenses are paid. Trustees are expected to attend a minimum of 4 scheduled meetings per year. In practice our Trustees contribute significantly more of their time on a regular basis.
The full Trustee role description, the Trustee Code of Conduct, which Trustees are expected to be willing to sign, together with the Constitution are all available on the website at www.worldheritageuk.org/resources/ (click Governance from the Sectors Menu on the left).
Charity Trustees may be representatives of members of the CIO, or may be interested parties who are able to bring appropriate skills or expertise to the CIO.
In order to keep the organisation well-grounded with the concerns of the UK’s WH Sites, it is hoped that at least 50% of the trustees will represent member organisations of the CIO either as employees or in a voluntary role, although this is not always possible. Similarly the Board aims to reflect the interests of all four home countries in its composition; at present there is no representation for Wales.
The maximum number of Trustees is 12. Each year the Charity Trustees who have been longest in office retire and may seek re-election. This year Tony Crouch and Steve Ratcliffe will stand down from the Board and both are seeking re-election. Professor Teresa Anderson was co-opted to the Board in August this year and is eligible for election. Two Trustees, Gill Clarke and Don Gobbett, are standing down from the Board. Voting will take place for 5 places.
