Regional and Country Advisory Boards
We have eight Advisory Boards whose role is to use their local knowledge to support regional and country management teams in delivering the Trust’s strategic objectives locally.
- To bring knowledge of the region/country, its people and their needs to the Trust, and to make connections with communities and locations where we currently don’t have them.
- To help shape the region/country’s strategies and associated plans; to highlight issues of importance/concern that should be reflected within them; and once set, to challenge and support the Director and his/her team in their delivery.
- To debate major issues affecting the region/country, so helping the Trust position itself in relation to them. To establish sub-groups as necessary.
- To act as a critical friend to the region/country including reviewing performance against an agreed set of strategy related key performance indicators while in general avoiding scrutiny of individual property performance.
- Within the scheme of delegation, to advise staff as needed on major schemes or strategic initiatives within the region/country involving specialist panels if necessary.
- To consider and advise the Board of Trustees on acquisitions, declarations of inalienability and major projects in the region/country.
