Board of Trustees

SPAN is governed by a Board with 12 members, 6 places of which are reserved for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) members and 6 for non-BAME members.  A quorum for the Board of Trustees consists of half its members. 8 trustees are elected at the Annual General Meeting and are nominated by SPAN member organisations. The Board can co-opt another 4 members based on their skills. At least 9 Board members need to have experience of being single parents. 

The Board helps to execute policy decisions taken at the AGM, and takes responsibility for governance, including overall responsibility for strategic development and final responsibility for staff, and finances. 

A new board of trustees was appointed by members in May 2015.
