The forthcoming Public Forum on 22nd February will include the inaugural Annual General Meeting of BCR CP. This is the point at which a newly selected Committee will take over from the current Steering Group to run the Community Partnership.
All individuals or community groups in our area who support our aims may join the Community Partnership. Any individual partner or any representative of a group partner is eligible to stand for a place on the Committee.
Committee members are responsible for the overall management of BCR CP, including organising events such as the public forums. Anyone who is a partner may put themselves forward as a candidate. There are 8 places available for representatives of group partners and 4 places for individual partners. According to our proposed Constitution (which is being put forward for adoption at the AGM), if there are more candidates than available positions, those selected are chosen by drawing lots at random. So there is no need for candidates to provide a manifesto or lobby for votes!
If you are interested in being a partner and standing for a place on the Committee, please let us know, even if you are not able to come to the AGM in person.
Fifteen local community groups have already joined as partners.
