Governance

Our Directors are a group of volunteers who hold the financial and legal responsibility for everything the AWT does.

The AWT Directors bring a wide range of knowledge, expertise and experience to the table and are responsible for approving our strategic plans, annual budget and annual report and accounts.

Directors are appointed from our membership at the Annual General Meeting of the Trust.

The AWT employs a paid CEO and a number of unpaid placement and resident volunteer staff who fulfil the AWT's key roles and responsibilities.

In addition there are more than 40 volunteers who ensure the AWT functions at a number of different levels. Volunteers do everything from manning the AWT’s shop, to repairing and maintaining the AWT’s tools and machinery, carrying out wildlife surveys, and helping at events.

Becoming a director

Any member of the Alderney Wildlife Trust may apply to become a director, provided they are eligible to stand for election under both company law and charity law. No fixed qualifications are needed, but a wide range of skills and experience are required in order for our Board to be effective.

If you are interested in becoming a Director, please get in touch. Directors are elected at our Annual General Meeting.
