Meet The Board

About

The CAS Trust Board is made up of supporters of Charlton Athletic from a variety of backgrounds, elected by members to represent them and lead in delivering the Trust's objectives.

Those who are holding CAS Trust offices are indicated in the introductions below. Board members are elected in accordance with our Rules, which are in alignment with the Supporters' Direct model rules for Supporters' Trusts.

We're always looking for other Charlton Athletic supporters to get involved with the Trust's work. If you'd like to help, whether that's being involved with the CAS Trust Board or another way, please see our 'Volunteer' page, and we do encourage you to get in touch by emailing the Trust Secretary.
