Role/ Expectations of Representatives

The Council representatives involved in LBT are full Trust members and as such play a crucial role in the governance and decision making of the theatre.  The particular skill they bring to the Trust is an understanding of the different priorities and initiatives within KMC and therefore Council representatives are expected to keep the Trust informed so that the theatre can ensure its activities contribute directly towards the priorities of the Council.


Meetings/ Time Commitments

6 meetings per year, plus many special meetings. Most Members also join a Sub-Committee
