Trustee Board Regulations


Updated 2 March 2022.

The Results of the Ballot held between 4-28 February 2022 to approve the introduction of new Trustee Board Regulations (TBRs) can be found here.

The approved Regulations can be found here.

Previous update 4 February 2022.

This is the second stage of a process begun in the 2021 ballot to approve changes to our Royal Charter and By-laws, when members approved removing four by-laws relating to the Trustee Board’s sub-structure and transferring the detailed requirements into a separate set of regulations.

On 29 September 2021 the Privy Council ratified the changes to the Royal Charter and By-laws that members had voted for, making way for the Institution to now seek member approval for the introduction of the Trustee Board Regulations.

The proposed TBRs [document reference TBR 2022/01] are supported by both the Trustee Board and the Council.

The independent scrutineer (Civica Research Services) will report on 28 February 2022 the results of this member ballot, which will then be communicated to members via a notice published on this webpage.

If the TBRs are approved then the upcoming Trustee Board elections will reflect relevant changes – replacing a single President-Elect position with two Deputy President roles and reducing by one the number of Vice-President roles.
