  • I am aged 18 years or over at the date of this election;
  • I am capable of managing and administering my own affairs;
  • I do not have an unspent conviction relating to any offence involving deception or dishonesty;
  • I am not an undischarged bankrupt nor have I made a composition or arrangement with, or granted a trust deed for, my creditors (ignore if discharged from such an arrangement);
  • I am not subject to a disqualification order under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 or to an Order made under section 429(b) of the Insolvency Act 1986;
  • I have not been removed from the office of charity trustee or trustee for a charity by an Order made by the Charity Commissioners or the High Court on the grounds of any misconduct or mismanagement nor am I subject to an Order under section 7 of the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1990, preventing me from being concerned in the management or control of any relevant organisation or body;
  • I am a permanent UK resident and have right to work in the UK;
  • I am willing and able to attend board meetings in any reasonably central location, and understand that the chapter will be unable to reimburse expenses at first (hopefully, expenses from the early days will be reimbursed at a later date, but this cannot be guaranteed);

  • I have read the information regarding trustees responsibilities on the Charity Commission's website ([1]) and understand and accept those responsibilities;
