Directors for Assoc of Guernsey Charities

 

**For information only: Applications closed**.  

 

The Association of Guernsey Charities (AGC) is recruiting three new members for their proactive board of directors.

The AGC supports and promotes the voluntary sector in Guernsey, highlighting its importance to the island and running member events, networking opportunities and training sessions.

If you’re passionate about Guernsey’s charities and would be keen to help provide them with a collective voice and a support system for their staff and volunteers, apply by sending your CV and a covering letter to chairman@charity.org.gg.

Time commitment

The AGC board meets 10 times a year, typically from 17.15 to 18.45 at the AGC office at Cobo Community Centre. Timing of meetings can be flexible to suit availability.

You’ll be scrutinising board papers, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, and bringing the benefit of your skills and experience.

Engaging with the AGC’s member charities is encouraged. There are three big meetings that bring members together each year, plus some adhoc meetings and visits to member charities.
