Seeking New Trustees

Cumbria CVS is looking to recruit new trustees at our AGM in November. Elected trustees must be drawn from our member organisations and so if you, or anyone you know with a link to a member organisation, may be interested in joining the Board, please do get in touch. Positions for co-opted trustees also available.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about our organisation and to influence how we work. We offer training and support to all our trustees – along with opportunities to meet and work alongside our staff where appropriate.  If you feel you have the time and skills to offer to Cumbria CVS at this exciting time please get in touch. We would be delighted to discuss the opportunity with you.
