The Trustees and Board are the custodians of Trócaire’s vision, mission and values; they approve strategy, structure, annual plans and budgets, and ensure the organisation is effective and accountable.
The Trustees appoint the Executive Director of Trócaire and have delegated a range of day-to-day decision-making powers to the Director and the Executive Leadership Team.
The Trustees of Trócaire are appointed by the Catholic Church’s Episcopal Conference. There are seven Trustees. They appoint a Board consisting of up to 14 members to advise and assist on the governance of Trócaire.
Our Board members are not remunerated for their work. They serve a maximum of two, three-year terms, to constantly refresh ideas and skills.
