In February 1999, a Trust Deed was signed between GNAT and the Board of Trustees of the Teachers Fund. In this document GNAT entrusted the safe-keeping and sound management of the Fund into the care of the Board of Trustees. The Trust Deed and the Rules and Regulations articulate the broad framework within which the Board is expected to oversee the management of the affairs of the Fund.
Board of Trustees
The Fund is governed by a fifteen - member Board of Trustees including ten teachers representing the ten regions of the country. These individuals are selected by members of GNAT at the regional level to represent them on the Board.
The Chairman of the Board of Trustees is selected by the National Council of GNAT. Currently, Mr. George Asare Yamoah is the Chairman of the Board. In addition, the National Council of GNAT is represented on the Board by two of its Executive Officers.
GNAT also appoints three external members to the Board of Trustees by virtue of their expertise in matters relating to the Management of the Fund.
