Join the council

Nominees wanted for the Canal & River Trust governing council.

The Canal & River Trust wants to bring the views of Friends into the heart of the organisation. Could you be the person they’re looking for?

Above the Trust’s Board of Trustees is the governing Council. This is a non-executive group that appoints Trustees and acts as an advisory board.

From March 2016, for the first time, there will be an elected Council member that represent the people who make a regular donation to the Trust and an elected Council member representing volunteers. Running alongside the election for these posts will be four places available to represent boaters, two places for boating businesses and one representative for the Trust’s staff. Nominations for the elections open in September and further details will be on our website soon.

For more information on the election process, please email
