Board of Directors
Maybe we should have titled this section Rogues Gallery! But we thought you'd appreciate putting a face to the name of those volunteers on the Trust's Board of Directors.
He is an active member of the Culbokie Church of Scotland where he is the Session Clerk. You will regularly see him helping out at the soup lunch in Findon Hall
Richard has a keen interest in the outdoors and his hobbies include hillwalking, cycling and kayaking as well as gardening.
Mark and his family moved to Culbokie in 2005 and his son attends Fortrose Academy.
Bruce's career was made up of 15 years as a research scientist in industry and the remainder in business development and general management. Now retired, Bruce and his wife, Carolyn, have lived in Culbokie for 17 years, including seven years experience as a community councillor.
Angie has lived in Culbokie for 17 years. Having taught in a sixth form college in Hampshire, secondary schools in South Wales and as voluntary secretary of the Henville Educational Foundation in Hamble, her background is in education and the performing arts. Since moving to the Highlands, Angie has taught Higher Drama at Eden Court Theatre and worked at Inverness College UHI in various roles, initially as Schools Liaison Development Manager and for the past six years as lecturer/programme leader for the HNC Acting and Performance course. Recently retired, she still enjoys teaching part-time.
In 2015 and 2016, Angie mentored a small team of Fortrose Academy students as they planned and organised two successful Culbokie Gathering events for different charities, and in 2017 she organised a Silent Auction as part of a community fund-raising event, aptly titled ‘The COOLbokie Gathering.’
Becoming a Director
Directors play an important role in the Trust. The Board of Directors is a formal body of elected (majority) Trust members and appointed/co-opted (minority) others, drawn together for the specific purpose of ensuring the organisation is properly run for the benefit of its members. Directors may be young or old, working, retired or unemployed. For instance they may be a joiner, cook, teacher, farmer, solicitor, stay at home parent or a volunteer play leader. In fact, the more mixed and diverse the Board of Directors, the more representative of the local community it is likely to be and the wider skills range it is likely to have. However, all Directors will be well informed about and take a healthy interest in community issues and activities and be keen to see the Trust make a real difference to the community.
Directors for this voluntary role are recruited through a due process as defined in theTrust’s governing documents. Directors are expected to serve up to three years.
Within the Board of Directors, appointments will be made to key roles e.g. Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Secretary etc.
