Board of Trustees meeting (4/12/10)

I'm heading home after a Ramblers Board of Trustees meeting today.

[For those who don't know, the Board meets about seven times a year
(usually either on a Saturday or Friday and Saturday). The trustees
are mostly elected at our General Council, together with two places
for cooptions, to fill gaps in knowledge or experience. I attend the
Board, together with some or all of my senior management team
(depending on the issues being discussed). There are also three
subcommittees of the Board, which often discuss issues before they
come to the Board meetings.]

Items for discussion today included: feedback from the special
national and regional volunteer meetings with Rodney (chair) and
myself; an update on the current campaiging against cuts to local
authority spending on rights of way budgets; the regular review of our
finances and performance targets (including membership); planning for
next year's General Council; and possible trial schemes to help boost

We always do a bulletin following the Board meeting, for volunteers,
with more details of discussions and decisions - this will be
available within the next week or so on the news page of the
volunteers section of the website.
