Our Trustee Board

The Trustee Board is the Union’s main governing body responsible for overseeing the work of the Union and setting the strategic direction.  The Board holds ultimate responsibility for the financial health, legal compliance and development of the Union. With a combination of elected and appointed members, 港彩开奖’s Board brings internal knowledge and external experience together to make key decisions about the organisation, ensuring it is well-run and always acting in the best interests of students.  

港彩开奖 is an incorporated charity. Our Trustee Board includes all five full time elected student officers (sabbatical officers) with the President of 港彩开奖 being the Chair of the Trustee Board. In addition there are three elected student trustees and three external trustees, appointed for their significant professional experience.
