NGA trustee appointments and elections

Election to NGA's Board of Trustees 2018

GOVERNING NGA as a trustee is engaging, challenging and enjoyable. We have seen a sustained period of rapid growth in an arena of constant and seemingly endless change; our board comprises a talented mix of experienced school governors/trustees and a clerk who bring to the table a wide range of valued business, education and charitable sector skills and knowledge.

This year we need to elect trustees in the following areas: East Midlands, North West and South West.

All NGA trustees must be committed to NGA’s aims and charitable purpose and have the generic skills essential to be a trustee. The board would particularly welcome nominations from individuals with skills/experience in the following areas: change management; recruitment including employment legislation; and experience of national lobbying.

In common with many governing boards in schools and across the wider charity sector, NGA’s board currently lacks diversity. NGA recognises that a more diverse range of trustees can help to ensure a charity is fair and open in all its dealings, as well as increasing public confidence and accountability. It can also help strengthen boards’ decision making by considering issues from more perspectives. We would particularly welcome candidates from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. 

Before applying, candidates should have regard to the following documents:

You may only stand for election as a trustee if you are a serving governor/trustee/clerk at the time of nomination and election.

Nominations for election should be submitted on the nomination form no later than 5pm on Friday 28 September 2018.

Co-option to the NGA’s Board of Trustees – Improving our diversity

Governing NGA as a trustee is engaging, challenging, and enjoyable. We have seen a sustained period of rapid growth in an arena of constant and seemingly endless change: our board comprises a talented mix of experienced school governors/trustees who bring to the table a wide range of valued business, education and charitable sector skills and knowledge.

But in common with many governing boards in schools and across the wider charity sector, NGA’s Board currently lacks diversity.  NGA recognises that a more diverse range of trustees can help to: ensure a charity is fair and open in all its dealing, increase public confidence and accountability and can help strengthen decision-making by boards considering issues from more perspectives.

Consequently, to increase the diversity of our trustee board, NGA is particularly seeking candidates from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

If you wish to put yourself forward please send a covering letter, CV, skills audit, declaration of interest and declaration of eligibility to Gillian.allcroft@nga.org.uk
