Guidelines for Submitting your Biosketch

 In Latest News

A biosketch is a one-paragraph description of your professional identity.


The main purpose of the biosketch is to provide written information about yourself to assist members in exercising their vote at the Council elections.


Your biosketch describes your professional and/or personal involvement in heritage and culture and/or any other related field in both Trinidad and Tobago and aboard.  It should also outline how you intend to help the Trust achieve the strategic objectives contained in its 2019-2023 Plan.

Members elected to the Council are the voice of the membership. Over the next three years, the National Trust  intends to continue to drive its growth through increased membership. As such, members elected to Council will play a pivotal role in championing membership relations and expanding our membership base. 

Since the 2020 Council elections will be conducted on a virtual platform, your biosketch should include a head shot so that members can easily identify the candidates contesting the Council elections at the General Meeting. 

The submission of a biosketch not exceeding 200 words is required under the Rules of the Trust.  You are asked to submit it with your résumé/CV and the completed prescribed Nomination Paper before the close of nominations on Wednesday 4th November 2020 at 12:00 noon


Your biosketch should be provided in an editable electronic format (Microsoft Word or PowerPoint, etc) and not in pdf.  This will assist us in sharing it with the membership on our website, social media and/or other media for the purpose of electing members to Council at the 2020 General Meeting.
