We are delighted to announce our two new trustees.
Before our 2020 Annual General Meeting on 11 December, we opened voting for our members to help elect two new trustees to the Board.
As part of this, we took positive action to enhance the diversity of our Board of Trustees and build their capacity in terms of skills and lived experience.
The role of an NCT trustee is vital in ensuring the charity is run effectively and acts in the best interests of all parents, and we thank all our members for voting for our future.
NCT Annual General Meeting
All NCT members were invited to the 2020 Members’ AGM, which took place online on Friday 11 December 2020. The AGM was preceded by presentations from a fantastic selection of guest speakers.
Our new trustees
At the AGM, we had the pleasure of announcing our two new trustees: Franciane Husbands-Chevot and Chi Evi-Parker. They bring a wealth of professional and lived experience to the Board and will attend their first Board meeting in March 2021.
Franciane described becoming a Trustee as a huge but exciting responsibility. She described how NCT has supported her through pregnancy and having a new baby during Covid-19, and how important the network of friends has been. She said the not everyone has this chance and she's looking forward to being a champion for diversity and inclusion.
Chi said she was delighted to be joining NCT as a Trustee. She said she was really excited by the inspiring and emotional conversations around the challenges facing maternity and the amazing things NCT has done over the last year. She thanked everyone for their support and welcome.
Please see our Governance at NCT page for further information about Franciane, Chi and all of our trustees and committee members.
