Location/Travel Details

The LeithLate Board meets on a monthly basis, usually remotely. Trustees are expected to attend at least 6 meetings per year, with an additional Annual General Meeting once a year. As we are a small organisation with no core staff, it is also expected that Trustees will give an additional day or two per month to work on tasks as required (e.g. fundraising, strategy documents, freelance recruitment, creative planning, etc.) Trustees typically occupy a tenure of 3-5 years, though this is subject to negotiation. Prospective LeithLate Trustees are welcome to attend a Board meeting prior to final confirmation in volunteering their services for the charity.
