Thursday, 19 December, 2019

BVSC currently has a vacancy for a Member Representative to join its Board of Trustees. All members of BVSC are eligible to put someone forward for this position.

The Board of BVSC is responsible for governing the work of the organisation towards the achievement of its charitable objectives.  You will be responsible for our strategic direction and our financial stability and sustainability. From our member organisations we need committed and passionate individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and skills. In return you will get a better insight into BVSC and how it operates, a better understanding of the strategic environment the sector works in and an opportunity to make a difference. BVSC is committed to developing and supporting its Board members.

Member representatives serve for a term of three years.  There are approximately five Board meetings a year.  In addition, members of the Board can serve on sub-committees of which there are currently two.  The minimum time commitment that you would be expected to make is approximately twenty-five hours per year.  Board meetings are held on a weekday usually over lunchtime, although the timing can be changed to suit the needs of the majority of Board members if required.
