RCSLT Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is advertising to fill the following trustee roles. The Board is keen that full opportunity is taken to encourage members to put themselves forward.

Catherine Dunnet (Country Representative for Scotland), Professor Pam Enderby (General Trustee) and Mary Heritage (General Trustee and Chair of the PPPC) all come to the end of their first terms of office at AGM 2017.  Under Article 37(2) they are eligible to stand for re-election for a second term of office.

Applications from other members who are interested in those positions are invited to apply.  Please note that only members who practice in Scotland can be nominated as Country Representative for Scotland.

The closing date for applications is Friday 1 September 2017.

Wales Country Representative

This post is currently vacant. A member who is elected to the post before September 2017 would serve until AGM 2019. 

Northern Ireland Country Representative

Anne Gamble, who is currently the trustee for Northern Ireland is retiring at AGM 2017. Her successor would serve until AGM 2020.

If you are able to perform at a strategic level, would like to play a part in the governance of the RCSLT and want to shape the future of your profession and the RCSLT, then think about applying. Don’t assume it’s not for you. What matters most is a passion to seek better lives for people with communication and swallowing needs, by supporting the speech and language therapy profession.

The Board of Trustees meets four times a year. There is also an induction day and further training will be given, if required. You will serve from date of appointment as a member of the Board of Trustees, until AGM 2020, with an opportunity for a further three years, if selected. For the avoidance of doubt, the three-year terms are not immovable and if for some reason you felt part way through your term of office you could not continue, then it's possible to resign. 

If you would like an informal chat with a trustee or senior staff member please contact: jo.offen@rcslt.org or tel: 020 7378 3007.

The closing date for applications has been extended to the end of business on Friday 4 August 2017.
