The Members of an Academy Trust are the equivalent of the shareholders in a commercial company (save that they do not receive dividends).
As Members we need to ensure that our Directors are providing appropriate support and challenge to the leaders within the Trust. Above all else we need to be assured that the vision and values on which the Trust was originally built are being upheld.
