Join the Canal & River Trust council
The Canal & River Trust is calling on individuals to stand for election to the charity’s governing council.
The council currently comprises 50 independently nominated and elected members together with six regional advisory board chairs. Together they reflect the wide appeal of the waterways from boating and angling through to walking and conservation. The council is responsible for the appointment of trustees, helps to shape policies and provides guidance and perspective to trustees.
“We are excited to be holding these elections to our council and I would encourage people to stand as candidates," said Allan Leighton, chair of Canal & River Trust. "The council plays a vital role in our governance framework and this is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with our work, find out more about the opportunities and challenges we face and channel the views of these constituency groups.”
The elections are for representatives from the private boating, business boating, fisheries and angling, volunteers, Friends of the Trust and trust employees.
The election process will be run independently by Electoral Reform Services and will be an online process. Nominations will run from 21 October until 18 November 2019.
The trust will send emails to all those eligible on 21 October.
