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 Council of not more than 13 members, 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:

– 6 to 10 persons elected annually by the Trust membership

– three persons appointed by the Governor.

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