Trustee Recruitment: Have you got what it takes to be a trustee of the Ménière’s Society?
The Ménière's Society is a UK registered charity providing information and support to those affected by vestibular conditions. We are currently seeking to recruit further trustees to join our friendly, supportive and hardworking board. The Society is particularly keen to receive applications from members with experience in Research or HR.
Applicants should support the Society’s aims and objectives to:
- promote and provide care and relief for sufferers from Ménière’s Syndrome and related vestibular conditions
- provide support for sufferers, their families and carers
- promote, assist with or encourage schemes of research, education or technical training having as their basis the improvement of diagnosing, alleviating and/or curing vestbular conditions
- promote scientific research into the causes of and alleviation and/or cure of Ménière’s and related vestibular conditions and the publication of the useful results of such research.
You will recognise the Ménière's Society’s strengths and achievements, but also act as a critical friend and make suggestions for improvement and change. Previous trustee/board experience is helpful, but not essential. All trustees must be members of the Meniere's Society. This is a voluntary role, however, travel and out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
Trustee meetings take place quarterly in March, June, September and December and the AGM takes place in October. In addition, there are other opportunities to support the Society’s work at events and meetings throughout the year. Induction and training is available for all trustees.
