Director elections: help guide the Partnership’s future
13th March 2018
Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC is looking to appoint two new voluntary directors to its board of directors. This is an exciting opportunity to help provide ongoing strategic direction to the Partnership and ensure it can support and enable its members as effectively as possible to create real change for the city.
A key part of the role will be to participate in a steering committee to shape and oversee the new member forum – a new initiative which will enable members to generate ideas and take action together to create positive impact.
About the Partnership
Bristol Green Capital Partnership is a unique network of over 850 member organisations that have pledged to work towards a sustainable city with a high-quality of life for all. It enables connection and collaboration between organisations of all sizes and sectors in order to tackle environmental challenges.
The Partnership is supported by a Community Interest Company (CIC), with a board of directors that includes two elected directors from our membership. The two previous elected directors were Savita Willmott, who finishes her two-year term at the end of April, and Darren Hall, who has chosen to end his term after a year in the role.
We are seeking candidates from our member organisations to stand in the 2018 elections. The Partnership’s 850+ member organisations will vote for nominated candidates, with the two new elected directors’ terms running for one year from 1 May 2018 with the option to extend. Please note that to ensure independence, nominees cannot be employees or directors of organisations currently represented on the board.
The detailed role information is available here, and you can apply online by Wednesday 28th March 2018. If you would like to discuss the role in more detail or have other queries, please send us an email.
Equality and Diversity
The Partnership is committed to equality and diversity and is keen to ensure that the board is representative of the community it serves. We would therefore particularly encourage applications from people from groups and communities currently under-represented on the board.
All nominees will be invited to take part in a ‘meet the candidates’ event at The Kitchen, Silver Street, at 4.15pm on 5th April before the Green Mingle.
Whether you plan to stand or not, put the date in your diary so you can come along and hear from the nominees.
