We are looking for CQI members and fellows to join our Board of Trustees. You will join the board at an exciting time as we navigate the profession and the CQI through a rapidly changing world. 

Can you lead the CQI?  

As the CQI’s primary governance body, the Board of Trustees set the strategy and direction for the organisation, and monitor its implementation and progress.

What to expect 

Trustees are involved in a range of activities, which involve committing to up to 12 days a year. These include: 

  • Attending four board meetings a year (including one ‘away day’).  All meetings are currently hybrid, except for the ‘away day’ and accompanying board meeting
  • Preparing for meetings by reading the relevant papers
  • Responding to email correspondence between meetings 
  • Taking part in other governance activities

This is a voluntary role but we will reimburse reasonable travel expenses within the UK.
