Will You Consider Becoming a Trustee?
We are eager to hear from anyone who is interested in becoming a Trustee for the Paget’s Association. Volunteers join the Board, usually for a period of three years, and some of our current Trustees will step down at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in October 2020. Led by our Chairman, Professor Stuart Ralston, our Trustees are all volunteers with an interest in Paget’s disease. Trustees are expected to attend Board meetings which are held approximately three or four times a year. Meetings are usually held in Manchester, but once a year are held in the area where the Annual General Meeting is taking place. The Trustees work together with our three members of staff to achieve the objectives set for the Association, which are to inform and support those with Paget’s disease, to support research into the condition and to raise awareness.
What does Trusteeship Involve? Between meetings, the Chairman may ask your opinion on issues concerning the charity and you may be given small tasks to carry out in line with your experience.
Are Expenses Paid? It is a voluntary role so there is no payment, however, expenses are reimbursed and knowing that you’ve helped those with Paget’s disease is very rewarding.
Do Trustees Require any Special Qualifications? You do not need to have any special qualifications. The single most important thing is a desire to help the charity to support those with Paget’s disease.
Do you have Paget's disease? The experience of those who have Paget’s disease, or who care for someone who has it, is extremely important to the Board so that the views of those living with Paget’s disease are represented. We are, therefore, particularly interested to hear from those who have personal experience of Paget’s disease.
