YHA doubles board of trustees in major governance reform

The YHA has doubled the number of trustees directly elected by its 300,000 membership as part of major governance changes.

Six new members have been voted onto the charity's board of trustees.

The board also contains 12 trustees nominated by regional committees and four national officers appointed by the YHA's national council.

The tenure of trustees was also increased from one to three years, with a third of the board seeking re-election each year.

Delegates at the charity's annual meeting also approved a five-year business plan, which includes a target to increase membership by 200,000. This will be done through licensing high-street travel agents and outdoor retailers to sell membership and creating new categories of membership.
