Trustees are responsible for overseeing the day-to-day running of Communication Matters, and ensuring we meet our aims and objectives. Trustees’ activities include vetting and administering grant applications, and organising our annual International AAC Conference and Study Days.
The Board of Trustees appoints a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary, but every Trustee carries legal responsibility. We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, so Trustees must ensure we comply with current charity and company laws.
We are the UK chapter of an international organisation, ISAAC – so the Trustees must also meet ISAAC’s own aims and objectives.
Trustees are not paid – it is a voluntary role – but they may claim related expenses for their work for us, such as travel costs.
