The committee will be holding a strategy meeting in early July to consider how well the Trust is meeting its aims and objectives and the needs of members. A key reference document is the constitution (http://bit.ly/1N4bpFw) which has the following section.See the feedback so far: https://goo.gl/PUH1CR
