The War Widows’ Association – Trustees

Are YOU ready to become a Trustee?

The War Widows’ Association is looking for new trustees to join the board. As a trustee you will become an important part in running this association, which is so close to all of our hearts. 

Trustees meet regularly to discuss and plan how to carry out our objectives. We look closely at our 3 pillars: campaigning, caring and remembering. 

This year we have been forced to meet on Teams and we intend to carry on with some Teams meetings along with 3 face to face meetings a year, once allowed.  If any trustee is unable to travel to a meeting, they can still join online and be part of the discussions. 

Trustees appointed now will be co-opted to the Committee, then will be put forward to be formally elected by the members at the AGM 2023. 

The Trustees deal with all aspects of governance as well as the day to day running of the Association. We are all volunteers and some have more time to give than others. We encourage Trustees to attend courses either virtually or face to face to further their knowledge and develop their skills.   

Committee Assistants 

If you don’t feel ready to take on the responsibility of becoming a Trustee or you don’t have a lot of time to spare have you considered becoming a Committee Assistant? You can help in any area of running the Association by working alongside a Trustee. You and the Trustee would decide how best to utilise your skills and it will give you an insight into how the Association is run. 

If you are ready to take up the challenge then please contact the Secretary on 
secretary@warwidows.org.uk 

I look forward to receiving your applications
