The Trustees


There are eleven positions on the Board of Trustees, split into four types of appointment. These are described below.

Trustees can only serve for up to four years (two terms) before having to step down; they can be re-appointed after a break of at least a year.

All Trustees have publicly stated that they have no intention of profiting or using their position as trustee for personal gain. They pledge to serve in the spirit of volunteering for the good of the Island.
