Governing the Islands Trust
The elected 26-member Islands Trust Council governs the Islands Trust.
Trust Council comprises two local trustees from each of 12 local trust areas and two municipal trustees from Bowen Island.
Trust Council meets quarterly to discuss and act on matters that affect the entire Islands Trust Area, including setting the annual budget; creating and monitoring a strategic plan; adopting the Policy Statement; and creating general policies. To learn about upcoming meetings visit the Meetings and Events Calendar.
At the beginning of each term, Trust Council elects:
- A chair and three vice-chairs to make up the Executive Committee
- Two representatives to sit on the Islands Trust Conservancy Board
Trust Council also establishes sub-committees to advise on assigned work and projects.
