Icon's Board of Trustees

Icon is governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees with wide and varied experience in conservation and related sectors

Icon is a registered charity. Our Trustees are responsible for setting the strategic direction of Icon and for agreeing and reviewing annual priorities.

Trustees are also responsible for the sound financial management of the charity and compliance with relevant regulations. There are currently 15 members of the Board of Trustees: 11 trustees were elected by the membership and 4 were co-opted by the Board. 

Icon's Trustees are both charity trustees and directors of the limited company. All Trustees are Icon Members and must abide by Icon's Values and Code of Conduct.

In addition to the Board of Trustees there are four main Board Committees which have resposibilty for aspects of Icon's activities:

  • Finance: Receives quarterly Management Accounts and oversees the preparation of the Trustees’ Annual Report, budget setting, the appointment of the Auditors and major project expenditure
  • Professional Standards and Development (PSD): Oversees, manages and advises on policy development and implementation of conservation related professional standards, training and education and research
  • Nominations: Identifies and interviews candidates for appointment as Co-opted Trustees or as Chair of the Board of Trustees and recommends to the Board which candidates should be appointed
  • Remuneration: Considers proposals for cost of living adjustments and staff remuneration and make recommendation to the Board
