Trustee elections

Any member of the National Trust for Scotland can put themselves forward as a candidate for election to the Board of Trustees.

In most years, two or three Trustees come to the end of their terms of service and therefore elections are held. Existing Trustees can either stand for re-election (Trustees cannot serve more than two terms) or step down. New candidates are also invited to come forward.

Trustees serve a term of four years and all members are eligible to vote for candidates on a ‘first past the post’ basis, although they may be assessed for necessary skills and experience by the Trust’s Nominations Committee. Information on upcoming elections will be published on this website and in the Trust’s magazine.

In 2017, Veronica Morriss was re-elected for a second term and David Mitchell and David Leslie were elected to the Board of Trustees for the first time.

2018 Trustee elections 

Keith Griffiths, Robin Harper and Amanda Herries are all completing their second terms as Trustees in September 2018. Therefore, candidates will be invited to stand for election to take their places – more information will be available soon.
