Governance

The Bermuda National Trust was incorporated by a public Act of Parliament, The Bermuda National Trust Act 1969, which created a membership-based organisation with the mission to preserve and promote Bermuda’s heritage. It is a registered charity (#81) in good standing.

The Trust is governed by a 13-member Council, assisted by several committees of volunteers with expertise in all areas of Trust activity. In addition to this strong volunteer team, the Trust is managed by a professional staff led by the  Executive Director.

Under the incorporating legislation, the Council is composed of:

– five persons elected annually by the Trust membership

– five persons appointed by the founding organisations (the Bermuda Audubon Society, the Bermuda Historical Society, the Garden Club of Bermuda, Keep Bermuda Beautiful and the St. George’s Historical Society)

– three persons appointed by the Government.

Officers of the Council are the President, Vice-President and Treasurer.

COMMITTEES

Committees are essential to the successful operation of the Trust, providing a vast amount of expertise across the full range of our activities. Many volunteers serve regularly on our standing committees, with others assisting on an ad hoc basis.

Not only do committee members provide time and talent, they ensure the continued democratic functioning of this broad-based community organisation. Our committees include:

Archaeological Research Committee
Development Committee
Education Committee
Finance Committee
Government House Furnishings Committee
Museums & Collections Committee
Preservation Committee
Publications Committee
Buy Back Bermuda (joint initiative with Bermuda Audubon Society)
