CALL FOR TRUSTEES
Trustees of the Society are elected each year by the membership. The Council consists of 12 members (13 in 2019), 3 of whom step down each year on a rotational basis. Trustees stepping down after a four year period, may seek re-election and, if elected, serve another four year term. Trustees stepping down after serving two four year periods may not put themselves forward for re-election until the following year.
Any Charity needs expertise in the areas of finance, PR, law, governance and, of course, for the Exmoor Pony Society, a real interest in the ponies and the conservation of the breed. There are between four and six Trustee meetings per year as well as sub-committee meetings on specific subjects and all Trustees are encouraged to put themselves forward. Expenses are available, if required.
Elections take place each year prior to the Annual General Meeting held on the 1st Wednesday in May. If you are a member of the Society and would be interested in becoming a Trustee of the Exmoor Pony Society then please contact the Secretary.
Nomination forms are available from the Secretary and should be returned, duly completed, not less than 35 clear days prior to the AGM to the Registered Office.
