Constitution & Management
The Lancaster Community Music Centre is operated by Lancaster Community Music Trust, a company limited by guarantee (company no. 02944161). The company is a registered charity (no 1062049).
The management of the Trust is undertaken by a board of unpaid volunteer trustees. Under the present constitution the Trust must have a minimum of three trustees to function. Applications from persons willing to act as trustees are always welcomed as new trustees are needed to secure the long term future of the Trust. Trustee appointments can be made at any time in the year.
Membership of the Trust is secured automatically for all families or individuals registered as members of the Music Centre. Trust membership entitles each registered family or individual to one vote at any meeting of members.
