Regional and Country Advisory Boards
Our Regional and Country Advisory Boards advise, support and challenge directors and their teams to help them deliver the National Trust’s strategy in their region or country.
What do the Advisory Boards do?
They complement the skills of staff on operational issues and act as ambassadors for the Trust, as well as providing support when considering major initiatives and investments.
Specific areas of their involvement include:
- To advise on how the Trust’s national strategy is implemented in a regional or country context and to offer constructive support and challenge to the director and their team in the delivery of regional or country business plans.
- To contribute to debates on major issues affecting the future success of the region or country.
- To support the regional or country director to establish and develop a presence in the region or country by acting as an ambassador for the Trust externally, opening doors and making introductions with key contacts and stakeholders.
- To bring knowledge of the region or country, its people and their needs to the Trust.
- Wherever possible, to provide support on projects and other challenges as requested by staff, outside of the Advisory Board meetings.
