Trustees

The Swedenborg Society is governed by a Council of up to twelve elected Trustees who are also Directors. This includes a Chairperson, a Treasurer and a Vice Chairperson. The Trustees meet 4 times a year.  The Society also has a wide range of subcommittees that advise the Council. New candidates for election are proposed and voted-in at the Annual General Meeting.

The primary role of the Trustees is to help advise the Society on matters of governance and charity compliance. The day-to-day running of the Society is left to the executive management team.

The Society is currently looking for new Trustees with the following expertise: Museum or Archival experience; Research; Finance & Accountancy; Publishing; Marketing; Information Technology

If you are a current member of the Society with these skills, and are interested in becoming a Trustee, please send your CV to us. You are also invited to complete the attached form immediately below.

The Society aims to be open and transparent in its elections. Full details of candidates for election to the Council are published in the Annual Report. New members of the Council are fully briefed on their duties as Trustees. The governance of The Swedenborg Society is set out in its Articles of Association which can be obtained from the Society on request.
