Meetings and board expenses
In 2012, the Board of Trustees held four regular meetings. In addition to monitoring the progress of the annual plan, the main topics were:
- Annual accounts and annual report 2011;
- Selection and appointing a new executive director;
- Reserve policy;
- The restructuring and division of the Marketing, Fundraising and Communications department;
- New location for head office.
Board members work on a voluntary basis. They don’t receive any remuneration and pay all travel and other expenses themselves. In 2012, one exception was made when a board member was requested to replace a War Child employee for an in-depth assignment in Lebanon at the last minute. Since this was regarded as a special assignment outside of the Board of Trustees’ mandate, War Child decided to pay for the member’s plane ticket and accommodation, totalling € 1,422. This is the only expense related to members of the Board of Trustees in 2012; all other expenses were paid for by the members themselves.
