What does a Trustee do?
Our Trustees are the people who have overall sight of and accountability for our charity. They play a big role in helping us to keep our strategic promises and best meet the needs of those we’re committed to support: engineers and their families worldwide.
They help to set the direction of our charity and make key decisions around how our charitable purpose should be carried out, and how our assets and resources should be managed. The role of a Trustee comes with a lot of responsibility, but brings with it even greater reward.
