NGA trustees are volunteer governors/ trustees from across England who are ultimately responsible for directing the affairs of NGA, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run and delivering the charitable objective: improving the educational welfare of pupils by promoting high standards and improving governance in state schools.
The board comprises a talented mix of experienced school governors/trustees/clerks who bring to the table a wide range of valued business, education and charitable sector skills and knowledge. NGA’s board of trustees meets five times a year – four formal trustee meetings, and one strategy day.
There are nine places on the board which are filled by election by NGA members on the basis of nine regions (East of England, East Midlands, London, North East, North West, South East, South West, West Midlands, Yorkshire & the Humber). Up to four more places may be filled by co-option by the board to fill any identified gaps in skills or knowledge. Elected members take their place from the AGM in November of each year. Their terms of office are three years, with a maximum of three continuous terms of service.
