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.
