Join our Executive Committee

24th August 2017

Would you like to help shape direction or make a difference to Scouting in Clyde Region?

Weíre looking for volunteers to stand for election to the Regional Executive Committee and become a Trustee of the Charity.

Whatís the Regional Executive Committee, do I have anything to offer and what might I get out of it?

All good questions!

So, the formal bitÖ The Regional Executive Committee is responsible for managing the affairs of the Region, for supporting the Regional Commissioner in meeting the responsibilities of his appointment and for providing support for Scout Districts, Groups, Explorer Scout Units and Scout Network Units across the Region.

But what does that mean in practice?

The committee meets four times a year and is responsible for overseeing the running of The Glasgow Scout Shop, Auchengillan Outdoor Centre and the regional office. In addition, it sets a development plan or strategy to look at how we might support local Scouting.

The committee discusses potential new developments for Auchengillan Outdoor Centre and ideas for events and activities, gets updates on accounts and budgets for all operations and manages risk (anything bad) that we might be exposed to.

We also look at challenges that are occurring within Scouting and how we can support more young people, regardless of their background to be given the opportunity to join Scouting.

Lots of people donít realise it but members of the Executive Committee are to some extent overseeing a business with a turnover of more than £2million per year.

But Iíve never been on a board or a committee before?

That doesnít matter, we can train and support you to grow in to the role. Youíll get an induction training evening with the Chair and Secretary and then weíll discuss what other skills you feel would be useful to you.

Additionally, some people opt to join committees because of skills that they already have in management, governance, communications, HR or risk management.

Itís good to have a mixture of experienced and new members.

So, interested? We have 4 vacancies this year, 1 of which will be a 1 year commitment , 1 of which will be a 2 year commitment and 2 of which will be a 3 year commitment.

Whilst anyone who is eligible can opt to stand for election, weíre keen to encourage applications from adult leaders and Scout Network members aged 18 to 23 as we would like two of our trustees from that age group and it would be good to increase our female representation on the committee as well.

For an informal chat about the role, you can contact Gary in the regional office.
