“I hope that new Board members will contribute to Board discussions, ask lots of questions both inside and outside of meetings and tell us where we can improve things. One of our organisational values is constructive challenge; when any of us around the Board table challenges things, it is important to try and be constructive, for example, where possible suggesting solutions to problems as well as talking about problems.
“Each Board member brings a different perspective, but what is the same for all Board members is that we are accountable to all Bron Afon tenants and are expected to act in the interests of the organisation.
“Being a Bron Afon Board member involves digesting a lot of information and sometimes making very difficult decisions. It is always interesting and being involved in an organisation that can make a difference to so many people’s lives is something that I feel is definitely worth investing time and energy in.
“The Board has seen a lot of changes over the four years that Bron Afon has been operating. One of the things we are constantly looking at is how the support that Board members get to carry out their role can be improved.
“Coming up are Board meetings each month except August and December as well as the annual general meeting in September. Each quarter we look at the accounts and how the organisation is performing. Other agenda items include discussion around priorities as set out in our corporate plan, for example, improving services, our investment programme, how we work with communities and bidding for external contracts in order to sustain jobs within the organisation.”
If you think you can help us meet these challenges please get in touch. Applications must be in by 16 July.
