The Trustee Board of the Students’ Union is the top level of governance and management at the organisation, and the group of individuals responsible for the long term strategic direction and stability of the charity. The Board members are the three Sabbatical Trustees elected each year, two Student Trustees and up to five External Trustees. All the Trustees are also Directors of the company that is limited under guarantee and so Trustee Board meetings also constitute meetings of the Board of Directors. More details regarding the Trustee Board’s powers and responsibilities can be found in Articles 32 to 59 of the Students’ Union Memorandum and Articles of Association found here. On an operational basis the Trustee Board discharges powers and authority to the Chief Executive Officer through the Delegation of Authority; this in turn empowers the Chief Executive Officer to manage and run the charity on operational basis.
