There shall be at least three Trustees of the Band who shall be appointed from time to time as necessary by the Committee from among Full or Honorary Members who are willing to be so appointed.

A Trustee shall hold office during his lifetime or until he shall resign, by notice in writing given to the Committee, or until a resolution removing him from office shall be passed at a meeting of the Committee by a majority comprising two thirds of the members present and entitled to vote.

All the property of the Band, including land and investments, shall be held by the Trustees for the time being, in their own names so far as it is necessary and practicable, on trust for the use and benefit of the Band. In the death, resignation, or removal from office of a Trustee, the Committee shall nominate a new Trustee in his place, and shall as soon as possible thereafter take all lawful and practicable steps to procure the vesting of all Band property into the names of the Trustees as constituted after such nomination. For the purpose of giving effect to any such nomination, the Honorary Secretary for the time being is hereby nominated as the person to appoint new Trustees of the Band within the meaning of Section 36 of the Trustee Act 1925 and he shall by Deed duly appoint the person or persons so nominated by the committee.

The Trustees shall in all respects act, in regard to any property of the Band held by them, in accordance with the directions of the Committee and shall have power to sell, lease, mortgage or pledge any Band property so held for the purpose of raising or borrowing money for the benefit of the Band in compliance with the Committee’s directions (which shall be duly recorded in the Minutes of the proceedings of the Committee) but no purchaser, lessee or mortgage shall be concerned to enquire whether any such direction has been given.

The Trustees shall be effectually indemnified by the Committee out of the assets of the Band from and against any liability, costs, expenses and payments whatsoever which may be properly incurred or made by them in the exercise of their duties or relation to any property of the Band vested in them, or in relation to any legal proceedings, or which otherwise relate directly or indirectly to the performance of the functions of a Trustee of the Band.

Limitation of Liability of Band Trustees (To be incorporated in every contract, lease, licence or other agreement entered into by the Trustees of the Band).

The liability of the Trustees for the performance of any contractual or other obligation undertaken by them on behalf of the Band shall be limited to the assets of the Band.
