Structure & Committees

The Community for Reconciliation is governed by a Council which consists of twelve members who are also the Trustees of the charity. Each year four members are elected by the AGM and they serve for three years.

There are three sub-committees namely Finance (FC), Barnes Close (BC) and External Relations (ER).There are also three groups namely Marketing (MG), Membership & Programme (MPG) and Fund Raising (FRG)

ERC currently has one working group namely the Footprints Project Management Group. The Trustees are looking to set up similar groups for Romania Concern, East Africa (formerly Un-Afr-Aid), Afghanistan and Village India Aid.
