The Commonside Trust is run a Board of Directors made up of local people. They meet every four-six weeks to discuss strategy, review and approve policies and set priorities for the Trust. Financial and operational reports are presented to the Board at these meetings by the Treasurer and (executive) Director. This provides an opportunity for Board members, who are also known as ‘the Trustees’, to ask the Director questions about programmes, activities, impact and outcomes and to raise concerns early on.
An AGM is held in the autumn every year and at this meeting, the annual accounts are presented by the External Accountant and approved by the Directors and Members. The AGM is open to all members of the Trust and is announced at least three weeks in advance.
