Description

RCAB’s Management Board is augmenting its team of Directors (who are also the charity’s Trustees). We want to broaden local representation on our Board and to enhance its collective expertise. Applicants, when considering these voluntary unpaid positions, must be keen and able to contribute fairly regular attendance.
The Board usually meets at the Bureau early evening (for about 2hrs) 6 times annually and at an AGM. Home reading and preparation is expected so that directors can make efficient meeting contributions. Some email correspondence between Directors takes place between meetings.

Local Group Director (currently 3 vacancies)
