What does the Board do?
The Chairman, Chairman Elect, Treasurer and up to 12 Trustees (including the three Committee Convenors) form the Management Board. As directors of the corporate charitable Society it is their responsibility to lead and direct the RSCDS throughout the year. The Board’s directors are responsible for, amongst other things:
- Ensuring compliance with charitable and corporate legislation
- Determining the strategy for the achievement of the charitable objectives
- Preparation of the annual financial statements and trustees report
How do I join?
In order to join the Management Board, you must first be a member of the RSCDS (either an HQ member or RSCDS Branch member). Please note that members cannot stand for election if they hold a Management Board appointed role (currently Schools Director, Music Director, Archivist, Magazine Editor, Child Wellbeing & Protection Officer).
We typically seek nominations from members who have a diverse range of skills and abilities to support the Society and help us to achieve our strategic aims:
