Chair of the Trustees - Geoff Hope-Terry 

I was appointed as a Trustee of Citizens Advice Cheshire West in June 2016 and was very pleased to take over as the Chair of the Board in July 2017.

As a Trustee I am responsible, with my Board colleagues, for ensuring the organisation takes decisions based on sound and timely data and also that there is an appropriate strategy in place, with Key Indicators to monitor the achievement of its goals.

As the Chair, I have the additional responsibilities of ensuring the Board Meetings are run effectively and that Trustees receive appropriate Training & Development. I also have a representational role in respect of community or public events and in our relationships with funders, especially where negotiations are concerned.

I was immensely proud to become Chair of this excellent organisation which provides an outstanding service to those in need. It is most important, to me, that we develop plans and find the necessary resources to continue our great work, for the benefit of the residents of Cheshire West.
