Join our Team! Board Members Needed!
Posted: Thu, 18 Jan 2018 13:17
We have an exciting opportunity for new board members including; Chair, Senior Independent Board Member and Board Member
team BEDS&LUTON (tB&L) is a dynamic, high performing and forward thinking organisation passionate about helping people get active and stay active in Bedfordshire. As one of 43 County Sports Partnerships (CSP) operating within England, tB&L was established in 2005 and tasked with the strategic development of sport and physical activity within the 3 local authority areas of Central Bedfordshire, Bedford & Luton.
Becoming a member of the board of team BEDS&LUTON provides a tremendous opportunity to be involved in enhancing the provision of physical activity for the wider community of Bedfordshire.
The role of Chair is important in leading in the Board and establishing an environment that enables the Board to achieve its potential and secure the long term success of the organisation.
The Senior Independent Board Member needs to be independent (free from any close connection to the organisation). Responsibilities will include: providing a sounding board for the chair; serving as an intermediary for the other directors when necessary; acting as an alternative contact for stakeholders; leading on the process to appraise the chair's performance.
The commitment will involve attending 4 board meetings a year (each one lasting no more than 2.5 hours) with encouraged attendance at 1-2 'flag ship' events during the year. We would expect new members to serve at least one 3 year term.
