Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance

Seeking new trustees for ARMA

by Garreth

ARAM logoThe Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA) is seeking to expand our trustee board to bring in people from different professional backgrounds. This is the ideal opportunity for someone who wishes to gain experience of serving at board level with an interest in improving health services for people with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. We are looking for trustees with a business or fundraising background to complement our existing board’s strengths in health provision and charity management.

ARMA is an umbrella body bringing together 35 member organisations, ranging from specialised support groups for rare diseases to major research charities and national professional bodies. Our vision is of an effective and unified MSK community working together to improve the lives of people with MSK conditions. We do this in partnership with our member organisations, by shaping policy and best practice. We have very strong links with NHS England and Public Health England. Our activities are not aimed at the general public, but we have strong recognition amongst relevant professionals and policy makers.

We seek to diversify the experience of our trustee board by co-opting two trustees. ARMA Trustees are appointed for an initial three-year term and after that are eligible to stand for a further three-year term. This is an unpaid honorary post. Board meetings take place on a quarterly basis and you will be expected to give your time for 4 meetings. Reasonable expenses are reimbursed. You must also be willing to provide advice on an ad hoc basis and serve on sub committees as appropriate.

If you would like to join the ARMA Board and think you have the appropriate skills and expertise, please contact us for more information or for an informal conversation. Please telephone 020 3856 1977 or email
