Governance

How we are run

Cumbria Wildlife Trust has a Board of Trustees that consists of 12 members elected by the Trust’s membership. All trustees are unpaid volunteers. The Board meets around ten times a year and is responsible for the overall governance and direction of the Trust.

Three main committees report to the Board. These are Conservation Committee, Development Committee and Audit and Risk Committee. We welcome expressions of interest from members interested in serving on a committee.

Responsibility for all operational management of the Trust is delegated by the Board to the Director and staff.
