Current opportunity

Connecting the Grassroots; Be part of a Global Movement by Taking Action Locally. Board Member Transition Town Forres For over a decade, Transition Town Forres (TTF) has been helping our local community increase ways of sustainable living. By initiating projects such as a thriving community garden, as well as providing opportunities for reskilling and recycling, TTF also promotes ways we can all address the Climate Emergency, including our dependence on fossil fuels. TTF works to strengthen a localised economy and by doing so, makes our communities more self-reliant and people more connected. Currently, a priority of TTF is to develop their board of trustees, and specifically, they are seeking someone to join the Board who has a skill set and experience in finance/accountancy/business management to serve for an initial one-year period. This is an exciting time to join TTF as it embarks upon another important milestone, in securing a community asset transfer of the building in which it operates on Bogton Road, Forres. Applications are welcomed from individuals who understand the challenges faced by small nonprofits, want to make a difference in their local community, and have a commitment to the Transition Towns movement and what it seeks to achieve. Trustee meetings take place 12 times a year and last approximately 1.5 hours. If unable to commit to being a board member, short-term (3-6 months) pro bono arrangements are welcomed, as well.
