Two new independent Directors appointed to Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC Board
4th February 2016
As Bristol Green Capital Partnership announces a new future and prepares for it’s leading role in continuing the momentum of Bristol’s year as European Green Capital, we are pleased to announce the appointment of two elected independent Directors to the Board of the Community Interest Company.
In December 2015 we announced a new future for the Partnership. As part of these plans we invited individuals from the wider membership of the 850+ partner organisations to nominate themselves to become additional independent Directors to the Board of the Community Interest Company. These positions are initially for one year with a possibility to extend.
These voluntary positions will help to ensure that the BGCP Board represents and amplifies the work of its 850 + network members and the range of diverse communities that the Partnership aims to serve in Bristol.
We received three nominations for the two Director positions – from Joy Carey (Bristol Food Network), Ann Cousins (Arup) and Savita Custead (Bristol Natural History Consortium). We are pleased to announce that the successful candidates are:
Joy Carey – Bristol Food Network
Savita Custead – Bristol Natural History Consortium
Thank you to all nominees for their participation in the elections and for their ongoing commitment to furthering the aims of Bristol Green Capital Partnership. Thank you also to all Partnership Member organisations who took part in the voting process.
