Trustees

The Board of Trustees, is a team of members that run and organise the Federation. Each Trustee is a member who said “Yes” when asked if they would like to become more involved with the WI and each gives of their time freely, with only expenses being covered.

It is a responsibility, BUT, a lot of fun is had during meetings and working together planning and running events.

Any member can ask to observe a meeting to learn more about the work these people do.
