Organisational structure and changes in officers. The running of Michaelhouse is supervised by its Trustees, who meet at least four times a year. The current Trustees are listed here. Each year the longest serving third of the Trustees resign, and may be re-elected, by the Members of Michaelhouse at the Annual General meeting. The Trustees appoint a Manager and an Assistant Manager. The current manager is Rosemary Barrett and the assistant is Christina Grant.
When it is necessary to appoint new trustees, a search of networks particularly amongst the congregation of Great St Mary’s Church is carried out, and when candidates have been identified who would be prepared to act as Trustees, they are considered by the existing members of the Trustees. Those considered suitable are immediately co-opted and then put to a vote of the entire membership at the following Annual General Meeting.
