Our first AGM is confirmed for 7.30pm on Thursday 22nd October, to be held virtually so you can join from the comfort of your own home. Formal notification will be sent out to members nearer the time but please save the date for now.
Ahead of the meeting, we are seeking new voluntary Board and sub-committee members to oversee the activities of Chorlton CLT. This is an exciting time for the CLT with a compelling proposal being considered by the Co-operative Group for the transformation of the The Picture House in Chorlton under community ownership. Furthermore, there is the opportunity to influence opportunities for more sustainable ways of living at Ryebank Fields should the land be sold for development.
We are looking for candidates who are strategic thinkers and creative problem solvers who are in tune with the values and ethos of a community-led organisation. You will ideally have a good working knowledge of housing and regeneration issues or, in any event, are keen to learn. We also want our Board membership and wider committees to better reflect the diverse socio-economic make-up of the Chorlton community and would like to attract more women, younger people, and people with a BAME background. Finally, we are particularly interested in candidates who have experience in marketing & communications and in planning / housing development, to add to the current skills of Board members.
If you are interested in applying either to be on the board or on a sub-committee, please fill in an application form by Monday 5 October confirming you comply with the qualification criteria, as well as providing a statement of no more than 250 words on why you feel you would be a suitable candidate.
Drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange an informal chat about the roles. Further information about the CLT is on our website including the findings of our board and membership demographic survey.
