What is a 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, LTSU'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.  

LTSU is an incorporated charity. Our Trustee Board can comprise of up to 9 trustees. These are made up of the elected officers, student trustees and external trustees who have expertise in a particular field that is beneficial to the development of the organisation. The President of LTSU is the Chair of the Trustee Board.

If you are interested in becoming a Trustee at LTSU, please make sure you meet Trustee Eligibility criteria, which can be found here
