Call for Trustees 2019

The time has come again to request nominations for Trustees for the next term in the life of Communication Matters. This is a role which demands stamina, commitment and skill mixing but which can be very stimulating and enlightening!

This year there will be four vacant places to be filled and the opportunity of appointing a further three Co-opted Trustees as appropriate. The announcement of Trustees will take place at the Annual Meeting on Sunday 8 September 2019 at the University of Leeds, during the Communication Matters International AAC Conference.

Trustees have a very important role. They share the ultimate responsibility for governing Communication Matters and directing how it is managed and run. Communication Matters is the UK Chapter of ISAAC (International Society for AAC). The Board of Trustees appoints a Chair / Co-Chairs, Deputy Chair and Treasurer – however all Trustees have a role to keep Communication Matters running and to enable it to carry out its range of activities.
