THE BRITISH DEER SOCIETY TRUSTEES

Our trustees are all volunteers and among other responsibilities ensure that the Society pursues its stated objects, by developing and agreeing a medium and long-term strategy.

They also ensure the BDS complies with its governing document, charity law, company law and any other relevant legislation or regulations.

While also ensuring that the organisation applies its resources exclusively in pursuance of its charitable objects.

DELIVERING QUALITY EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Annually, the BDS seeks Trustee Directors to join its board and contribute expertise within specific areas. Candidates must empathise with the Society’s objectives and activities and have solid experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • governance
  • fundraising
  • income generation
  • business development
  • membership recruitment
  • political/PR/media spokesperson
  • investment management

Some knowledge of the public agencies and voluntary Third Sector work is helpful but not essential.

The Trustee/Directors have Board meetings 4 times a year (in person and/or online) conducting additional business by virtual meetings and email. Each Trustee/Director commits additional time to participate in specific sub-board group activities.

The roles are voluntary but bring the opportunity to make significant contributions to an active and well- respected organisation.
