The Members attend an Annual General Meeting (AGM) as well as occasional General Meetings. Their role is largely "hands off" but includes some critical responsibilities, including appointing Trustees, appointing the Trust's external auditors, and approving any changes to the Trust’s articles of association, to ensure the Trust carries out its charitable objects.
