Could you be an HVA trustee?

Would you like to govern and steer Hastings Voluntary Action and help it to provide better services for the local community?

Hastings Voluntary Action is looking for people with time to spare to serve as a trustee for the forthcoming year. The Board is keen to ensure a strong balance in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, disability and size of organisation, and encourage all members to consider becoming a part of our management structure. If you can bring dynamic management, HR, fundraising, marketing, or networking skills into the mix, we would really like to hear from you!

Board meetings take place about 6 times a year, and currently take place on Wednesday mornings from 10am to 12noon. We will organise an induction session for newly elected trustees. In addition trustees could be invited to join working groups which reflect their particular area of skill or interest. HVA can reimburse any out of pocket expenses.

HVA is a charitable company, and so elected members are trustees of the charity and company directors, with the liability of elected members being £1.

HVA’s current board comprises the following (as of October 2023):

Our rules allow for up to ten trustees to be elected that represent our member organisations, and then up to three independent people. HVA is now seeking nominations to fill these positions.

To nominate yourself or someone else for HVA's trustee board, please complete the nomination form below and return it to HVA by email or post.
