Call for Trustee Nominations for ENN

Over the past four months, the ENN has undertaken a funding review, to explore options around longterm sustainability. The ENN originally arose out of a collaborative inter-agency initiative and has continued as a jointly owned multi-agency partnership. It has been supported over the years by a wide variety of bilateral donors, and an increasing number of UN agencies and NGOs.

In this review, the ENN has consulted with supporting agencies, to explore other avenues of funding to try and place Field Exchange and other ENN activities under a more secure funding arrangement. So far, the feedback and support from agencies has been positive and constructive and a number of avenues are being explored. As part of this ongoing process, a key decision has now been taken by the ENN directors for the ENN to apply to register as a charity in the UK. This will open up funding opportunities, has tax advantages, and, in subjecting the ENN to the scrutiny of the Charities Commission, further strengthen our accountability to Field Exchange stakeholders and readership.

We therefore invite nominations for the positions of ENN trustees to comprise the ENN trustee board. This is an unpaid role and requires considerable investment of time, as well as a strong sense of belief in the ethos and role of the ENN. The specific role of trustees, as laid down by the Charities Commission, can be accessed at http://www.charitycommission.gov.uk/rece nt_changes/CC3_the_essential_trustee.asp

Anyone who would like volunteer, make a nomination or discuss this further can contact Marie McGrath, email: marie@ennonline.net, tel: +44 (0)1865 249745, or Jeremy Shoham, email:jshoham@easynet.co.uk, tel:+44 (0)208 4469286
