What is the board of trustees?

As a charity, LCC is run by a board of 10 trustees, who are elected by our membership.

Trustees play a pivotal role in setting strategy and overseeing staff and volunteer actions: from helping to decide what campaigns we should run to ensuring our finances are in good shape.

Working with our professional staff team, the board is LCC’s highest-level decision-making body after the AGM itself.

All trustees also belong to at least one of our decision-making committees:

  • Campaigns & Active Membership
  • Policy Forum
  • Income Generation
  • Finance & Administration
  • Human Resources

Would you make a good trustee?

Board members come from diverse walks of life. Their backgrounds range from entrepreneurship to academic research; their experiences range from community volunteering to competitive sport.

What they all have in common is a passion for cycling and for making London a better city through cycling.

We need people who can see the bigger picture, work well with fellow Board and committee members and who can bring to the table their ideas, enthusiasm and opinions.

On a practical level, you will need to attend bimonthly board meetings and attend at least one committee, which can also meet up to six times a year.

These meetings take place in the evening at LCC’s office near London Bridge, generally start at 6.30pm and last up to two hours.

We encourage any potential candidates to come to our open afternoon on Monday 5th August (4-6.30 pm). You will be able to have an informal chat with staff and trustees and ask questions. If you can't make it, please contact trustees Claire Wren (claire@lcc.org.uk) or  Mel Grech (mel@lcc.org.uk) with your questions (please include your phone number in your email).
