Related QuestionsHow do you choose your trustees?
Trustees are appointed by the Board via an open recruitment process.
When vacancies arise, these are advertised on the CAT website.
The Board aims to have a strong range of skills and knowledge to support CAT’s work, therefore recruitment is aimed at gaining additional expertise in key areas.
CAT’s Board seeks to ensure that the charity follows the principles of equality and diversity and encourages inclusive and accessible participation.
CAT values diversity, in the widest sense, considering this essential for its Board to stay informed and responsive and to navigate the fast-paced and complex changes facing the voluntary sector.
CAT recognises that trustees from different backgrounds, with a variety of experience and perspective, are more likely to encourage debate and make better decisions.
When you join CAT as a member, you are becoming a supporter member. This is distinct from being a member of the Charity as outlined in the Memorandum and Articles of Association.
Supporter members have no legal liabilities and don’t vote in our AGM.
Supporter members are, however, invited to join the annual CAT Conference to explore ways of working together to research and promote solutions to the climate and biodiversity emergency.
CAT supporters are the lifeblood of the organisation – we simply could not continue with our vital work without their commitment and generosity.
