Skills and experience
Over the next 5 years we will grow and increase engagement with our professional membership and the general public, and it is this latter aspect that will specifically benefit from the views of a Lay Trustee. We will run a diverse programme of events, and fund research that will demonstrate that excellent science underpins excellence in clinical practice, and we will also invest in public engagement events. We will invest in the JHI and more closely integrate the journal with the Society.
As a Lay Trustee you will help inspire, set and maintain the charity’s vision, mission and values. You will help to develop the strategy, and ensure compliance and accountability for finances, legal and governmental obligations are met.
