Board Member / Trustee Role Description and Skill Set

Board Position Summary:  The Board will support the work of Span Arts and provide leadership and strategic governance.  While day-to-day operations are led by Span’s Director, the Board-Director relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected.

Individual Member Position:  Responsible, in partnership with other Board members and the Director and her/his team of staff, to lead the organization through implementation of the Span strategic business plan and by performing fiduciary, strategic and policy responsibilities.

Term:  The Charity Commission endorses the recommended good practice set out in the Charity Governance Code that there should be a time limit of 9 years on Trustee tenure.

Span has therefore adopted a term of 3 years for Board Members / Trustees, which may be renewed for two further terms to a maximum of nine years.

Any Board member / Trustee who has served for more than this term will be asked to step down from the Board to ensure maximum diversity of views and for new skills to be sought.
