The CMSI Board Of Trustees

CMSI’s Board Of Trustees is made up of elected representatives from the Society’s membership. Comprising local members, clergy and ex-Mission Partners, the trustees are experienced individuals, who are passionate about mission and committed to CMSI’s development and growth.

The Board Of Trustees is specifically responsible for CMSI’s strategy, finances and policy. It is the trustees’ role to govern the society – prayerfully overseeing and developing our work.


The Board meets together five or six times each year (including the AGM); they usually meet in Dublin on a Friday evening or on a Saturday.
