Elec­tions 2015: All change at the top for CRT

Canal Boat - - News -

EIGHT NEW MEM­BERS have been elected to the Canal & River Trust’s gov­ern­ing na­tional Coun­cil – and four new Trus­tees are now be­ing sought.

Four years on from the first elec­tions when CRT was set up, the boater, em­ployee and busi­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive posts were all up for re-elec­tion – plus the first poll for the new elected mem­ber rep­re­sent­ing vol­un­teer­ing. Our re­port on pages 12-13 gives the full re­sults.

The next tier of CRT’s gov­er­nance is the board of Trus­tees (who, in turn, oversee the ex­ec­u­tive direc­tors forming the top level of man­age­ment of the Trust), and they, too, are to see some changes.

Un­der the Trust’s con­sti­tu­tion one third of all Trus­tees must end their term of of­fice ev­ery year, and they can only serve two terms. Al­though it’s not yet de­cided who will leave, there will need to be up to four new ap­point­ments – and CRT is par­tic­u­larly seek­ing ap­pli­cants ex­pe­ri­enced in her­itage, char­i­ta­ble trusts, com­mu­nity and gov­ern­ment re­la­tions, peo­ple man­age­ment, and in­fra­struc­ture and oper­a­tions man­age­ment.

They are vol­un­tary po­si­tions ( but with ex­penses paid) re­quir­ing a com­mit­ment of two to three days per month. Any­one in­ter­ested should email QAWTD@saxbam.com.
