We meet in London four times a year and probably communicate by email up to a few hours a week. EPUK is volunteer-led and unpaid except for essential travelling costs to meetings in London. The Board currently comprises 9 Trustees with a Chairman. As there are pending retirements, the Board is seeking volunteers to apply for election. We are especially interested in people who can offer marketing & financial skills. Someone with a little (not essential) scientific background would find this role extremely fulfilling. 

Environmental Protection UKis a charity which was established in1898 and was formerly known as the National Society for Clean Air & Environmental Protection.

Scientific advice for the Board is provided by the Air Quality, Land Quality & Noise Committees the Chairs of which are also Trustees.
