Our elected board

The Dons Trust Board (DTB) runs the Trust and is elected by the Trust’s members. The DTB and Football Club Board (FCB) work closely to give the Trust and the club unified, strategic leadership and direction.

There is a clear line of accountability running from the football club’s directors, through the club’s CEO, and up to the fully elected DTB which is, in turn, accountable to the membership as a whole. Discover more about our corporate structure.

The role of the DTB is to set and agree the club’s strategic direction and to scrutinise the performance of the FCB.

The DTB consists of nine elected members (plus currently an additional co-opted member). The Chair and Vice Chair are both responsible for representing the Trust at monthly Football Club Board meetings and for the day-to-day liaison between the two boards.

The board usually meets once a month and minutes of board meetings are published, along with regular summaries of their discussions.

The Dons Trust Board is supported by a number of working groups, outlined below. We rely on the support of our fans. Get in touch via volunteerofficer@afcwimbledon.ltd.uk if you would like to find out about how you could get involved.
