Emmaus Hertfordshire has a board of trustees supporting our community.
All of our Trustees have a diverse set of skills and backgrounds, including a chartered accountant, chartered surveyor, former government cabinet adviser, retired community nurse, and others with financial, support, business and marketing backgrounds.
The purpose of the board is to provide sound governance to the organisation. This includes agreeing strategic direction, approving and reviewing policies and procedures, appointing executive staff and ensuring compliance with the objectives, purposes and values of the organisation, and with its governing document. The Emmaus Hertfordshire board of trustees has adopted the NCVO Code of Good Governance. The board meets bi-monthly, for discussion, feedback and socialising.
Emmaus Hertfordshire regularly conducts a board skills analysis and has a structured and transparent method for recruiting additional experienced, qualified and committed people to join and strengthen the board and project groups.
