Trustees have no authority to act on their own as a trustee unless this has been authorised by the trustee board as a whole. Some charities use different terms to describe the trustee board, such as management committee, executive committee or board of directors. Again, what matters is the role, not the title. In an Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) a trustee is a director.
