Trustee Board


Your Union is governed and strategically led by the Board of Trustees.  They are ultimately responsible for making sure that we operate in line with our charitable objectives.  AberSU Trustee Board is made up of 12 members and meets at least four times a year to carry out its business on behalf of you. You can read the minutes for each meeting at the bottom of this page.  The Board is made up of:
