Meet the Trustees

The Trustees are voted for by the membership in general meeting.

In 2018 the volunteers voted to change our Articles of Association to embrace a more inclusive approach to the Co-Chair roles. This means we now have two women at the helm of Switchboard for the first time since it all began in 1974.

  • Two Co-Chairs and the Secretary and Treasurer (the “Officers”)
  • Seven Trustees: four open posts for which any member of the Company may stand and three designated posts for which only members of under-represented groups are eligible to stand (groups which are currently under-represented within Switchboard are: women (including trans women), people of colour, people from ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, people over 50 years of age and trans and gender non binary people). [Trans refers to people whose gender identity does not match the gender they were assigned at birth]
