Join the Bristol Pound Board

Vacancies are open on the Bristol Pound Board: Individual and Business Member Representatives. *The deadline for applications has been extended to 27 November 2017*

Background

The board reserves two places for a person representing the business members and a person representing the individual members. These board members are elected at the Annual Meeting and hold their positions for a two-year period. They may stand for re-election after their two-year period, but after that they must stand down.

You can see a full list of current board members and their roles on our website: bristolpound.org/board

Forthcoming Election

We currently have one vacant position for a business representative, and one sitting candidate standing for re-election as an individual representative. New candidates are welcome to stand for either post. The election will be held by secret ballot at the Annual Meeting on 28 November 2017 at the PRSC on Jamaica Street. Only members of the Bristol Pound who are present will be able to vote in the ballot.

Candidates standing for election should be:

  • Active users and advocates of the Bristol Pound
  • Keen to represent other users of the currency
  • Available to attend board meetings every 6 weeks during office hours (usually 4:30 – 6:30)

Board meetings are held roughly every six weeks at various locations in the city centre.

To Apply

We are committed to equal opportunities and applications are welcomed from all who believe they fit the essential requirements of the job. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as we are keen to increase representation of these groups at Bristol Pound CIC.

If you are interested in standing for either of these positions, please send a short 100 word summary about yourself and why you would like to join the Bristol Pound board, together with a portrait photo (not obligatory) by 12 noon on 27 November*. Statements and photos will be included in the papers for the Annual Meeting on 28 November, which you are encouraged to attend.

Please send statements to ruby@bristolpound.org
