The Institute of Fundraising is now seeking candidates who would like to stand as potential trustees from July 2005. As a membership organisation, we run annual elections, and this process starts by notifying all of our members of the chance to put themselves forward as candidates.
The fundraising profession needs a strong voice, and the Institute is looking for passionate and committed trustees. The term of office is three years, although each trustee does have the chance to stand for a second term. Trustees need to be available to attend six meetings a year and participate in one of the sub-committees dealing with an area of strategic work.
This year's elections have one major addition - we are seeking trustees to stand from each of the four nations of the UK. There are specific seats earmarked for candidates from Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, as well as three representing England, to enable the trustees to represent the needs and concerns of fundraisers from all parts of the UK.
The Institute's website lists the current trustees and includes a document summarising the role.
If you would like to apply, you will need to complete a nomination form and return it before the deadline of 6 May.
Anyone looking to discuss the role confidentially is invited to email the CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
