Removing a trustee

Whether simple or more complex, the chair must use their position to lead the board to act together in removing a trustee.

The grounds for removal are somewhat simple. If, for example, a trustee has not done anything for some time and has not turned up or apologised for three meetings in a row, knowing that passivity is not an option, trustees may vote to remove the non-contributing trustee. In turn, they may be then prompted to amend their policies on attendance and begin to keep an attendance list. Or perhaps that trustee has been found guilty of dishonesty or some other misconduct which casts doubts upon their ability to serve the charity.
