Photofusion is recruiting new Board members

Role of the Photofusion Board

The Photofusion Board works with the Executive Director to ensure that the organization is effectively and properly run. While delegating programming and operational decision making to the Executive Director, the Board, as the governing body, is responsible for decision making at company level and is held to account for all the activities of the organisation. As the group responsible for ensuring that the organisation operates properly and effectively, the Board must ensure Photofusion remains fully compliant with company and charities law and best practice.  The Board is also required to monitor Photofusion’s performance against its agreed objectives and to act as advocates and advisors for its work.

Photofusion Educational Trust (PET) aims to raise income for photography education in London, and is recognised as a charity by the Inland Revenue. Photofusion Ltd is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. The combined group is presently searching for new Directors who would be interested to serve on Boards of both legal organisations in future.
