Vacancy – Chairperson of Bedfordshire LNP
A unique opportunity for a charismatic Chairperson to lead the Bedfordshire Local Nature Partnership Board.
Our current Chairman, Jon Balaam, is due to step-down as Chair at the AGM in May. We are now looking for nominations for a leader to build upon the foundations of the LNP and continue to move it forward over the next three years.
The Bedfordshire Local Nature Partnership is governed by a Board of high-level thinkers and advocates drawn from various sectors who lead our strategy. We are currently seeking a new Chair to provide strategic leadership for the Partnership and to act as a figurehead in influencing key stakeholders.
If you have a strong commitment to Bedfordshire’s natural environment; a track record in operating successfully at a senior level; and excellent communication and interpersonal skills this could be the volunteer opportunity for you.
We are also looking for a Vice-Chairperson
The Vice-Chairperson will work with the Board to support the Chairperson and lead the LNP.
The Bedfordshire Local Nature Partnership brings together all those interested in protecting and enhancing our natural environment for the benefit of people, wildlife and businesses. Our aim is for a county richer in nature. If you have a strong interest in Bedfordshire’s natural environment; a track record of operating successfully at a senior level; and excellent communication and interpersonal skills this could be the volunteer opportunity for you.
The Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson would each need to allocate around 12 days per year to these voluntary roles and the work of the Partnership, including Board meetings every quarter.
Board members are expected to serve a three year term.
Are you interested?
If you are interested in the role of Chairperson or Vice-Chairperson please contact Jon Balaam, current Chairman, for an informal discussion 01234 743666. Or you can talk to any of the Board members, please ask for contact details.
Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson will be elected at the AGM.
The deadline for nominations for the 2016 AGM is Monday 9th May, using the form available from Alexe.Rose@greensandtrust.org
