Our Trustees

Board of Trustees


Our Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, developing the organisation’s aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing documents, legal and regulatory guidelines.

In order to stand for election as a trustee, an individual must be nominated by at least two members of Scotland’s International Development Alliance.  Trustee Nomination forms are made available through our website in advance of each AGM. The most recent AGM took place on 2nd December 2020; see more here.
