Each year as part of our AGM, we hold elections for our Board of trustees and this year (2022) we have several places available. This is partly due to the 3-year cycle of a trustee’s term, and partly due to some trustees deciding to stand down after many years’ service. So this is an opportunity for the Board to attract fresh faces, particularly from people with the skills and lived experience to oversee LCC’s work to make London a cycling city.
We are also keen to add to the existing trustee skillsets – if you have strong business, finance or HR experience, particularly in the post-pandemic flexible working world, we’d welcome you putting your name forward.
We hope that this page will encourage you to give some thought to your potential to serve as an LCC trustee – start by reading this article which appeared recently in our magazine. And if you have any questions, we’ll be holding an informal Zoom on Monday 25th of July when Ashok Sinha, the CEO of LCC, some of our existing trustees and committee chairs will be pleased to have an informal chat. If you’d like to attend this, please get in touch.
The Board agrees the overall strategic aims of the organisation, based on by recommendations from the staff team. It scrutinises the endeavours of the staff team in particular, and the whole organisation in general, to achieve these aims. It is assisted in this, by a number of committees to whom it delegates authority for overseeing key areas of activity. This helps the Board ensure that adequate and necessary plans and processes are in place for the organisation to pursue its objectives.
The Board is also responsible for ensuring that the Charity meets all its legal obligations, and for addressing governance matters and overseeing the charity’s internal democracy.
