Meet our trustees
The Snappy Trust is governed by a constitution adopted on 8th May 1985. The Management Committee comprises four officers – Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, plus up to four elected members and two co-opted members. Members are elected at each AGM and serve for one year but are eligible for re-election or re co-option. The Trustees meet at least 5 times a year to administer our charity. Salaried staff are appointed by the Trustees to manage the day to day operations of the charity.
