Those appointed to serve as trustees must be members or sojourning members of Britain Yearly Meeting (4.04). Appointments should be made by the area meeting and the dates of service recorded by minute. When seeking Friends to serve in this role, meetings should be mindful of the need to involve Friends with a variety of skills and experience. Trusteeship does involve taking care of buildings and overseeing finance, but it is far more than this: Friends’ experience of Quaker ways and general common sense are the two most valuable assets that they can bring to this role.
