NUS celebrates Trustees Week

Tuesday 11-11-2014 - 12:00

This week marks Trustees Week and as a partner, NUS has been working alongside other organisations to develop and promote an exciting programme of activity aimed at supporting trustees in their roles..

Praising the work of trustees, NUS Vice President (Union Development) Raechel Mattey said ‘Trustees are an essential part of keeping our movement strong, stable and dynamic. From the student balancing board papers with their coursework to the professionals who give up their time to support tomorrow’s leaders. I’m delighted that NUS is celebrating the work trustees do and supporting our boards and our movement to be better than ever.’

Here’s what NUS has planned for the week ahead:

  • Today (Tuesday 11 November), NUS will be running an event dedicated to supporting lay trustees to understand and make the most of their roles. Due to high demand, this event is now at capacity, however materials and learning from the day will be shared electronically (email to be added to the Strategic Support Briefing mailing list and to be the first to receive these resources).

  • On Thursday 13 November at 1.30pm, NUS is running an introductory webinar exploring the constituencies of students’ union trustee boards. Staff and officers can sign up to participate in this webinar session here.

  • Across the week, NUS will be planning to launch updated guidance on recruitment for students’ union trustees and will be showcasing the work of some of our referred suppliers in this area.

Trustees volunteer their time and play a core role in making important strategic decisions about the work of charities. NUS is interested to hear what your students’ union does to support your trustees board across the year. If you would like us to share your case studies or stories of good practice on NUS Connect over the course of Trustees Week, please email
