THE BOARD

The Board of Future Wolverton is elected annually by the Members at the Annual General Meeting, and is responsible for the day-to-day delivery of projects and strategic direction of the organisation.

Our Rules allow for representation on the Board from the Town Council, Churches Together in Wolverton, The Radcliffe Community of Schools and Wolverton Society for Arts & Heritage. The nominated Board members provide a flow of information to Future Wolverton which means that the strategic direction of the organisation is informed by the wider community as well as the membership.

Some of these organisations chose not to nominate a representative to the Board for the 2020/21 year.
