We would like to encourage the community to become members of Barrhill Development Trust. Becoming a Member does not entail any specific commitment and is completely free, it simply shows that you support the aims of the Trust. There are 3 categories of member.
Your membership application will be presented to the next Board meeting and approved on the basis of which of the 3 above categories you qualify for, as detailed in the Constitution.
As a Member, we will write to you from time to time about the development of our projects and you will be invited to all Member’s Meetings. We promise that any information you provide will be used only for the activities of Barrhill Development Trust.
To comply with the GDPR legislation, Barrhill Development Trust is required to notify Members that the membership information membership is held by Barrhill Development Trust for the purposes of membership administration and not shared with any other organisation. We will write to you from time to time about our work. You may ask us to remove your details, we will do so in accordance with the legislation, this will mean we will not be able to contact you on any matters and you will no longer be a member nor be able to vote.
The BDT benefits from a diverse Board and encourages applications from any member of the community, in particular the Board invites those with governance and financial management skills. It is not essential to have sat on a board before. In fact, we actively encourage those who are passionate about our charitable objectives and will bring new perspectives. This is a voluntary role requiring attendance at twelve board meetings a year, additional time to scrutinise papers, and occasional additional sessions to discuss strategy - expect up to 5 hours per month half of which is a face:face meeting. There will also be Trustee training throughout the year and this time will be additional, usually on a Saturday. We may also use the information on application forms to approach individuals for voluntary roles on sub committees which benefit the Community. Please read through the below information pack and if you have any questions, just want to chat about the role or would like an application form - please get in touch using our email address.
