The SPAB has always had strong links to the National Trust. This link has been maintained in many ways, but most formally through a SPAB place on the Trust's Council. After a governance review, the Trust has recently reduced the size of its Council. Only a limited number of organisations will retain a place, but we are delighted that the Trust has picked the SPAB as one of its preferred organisations in the election. SPAB members and supporters, who are also members of the National Trust, can help secure the Society's place by using their National Trust vote (deadline 12 October 2018). Vote on the National Trust website.
