Do you want to have a role in progressing the development and direction of Northumberland VCS Assembly?
 
The majority of the existing Assembly Executive members have been on the committee for 3 years and as we have made changes to the roles, all existing members are standing down so we are now recruiting 12 Assembly members to the new roles.
 
There are four positions on the Committee to represent the north, central, south east and west areas of Northumberland, two positions to represent health and social care, one to represent youth and 5 general positions.
 
All nominations must be Assembly members, and current members of the Committee can also apply. Members can nominate themselves of be nominated by other Assembly members with their permission. We are also keen that younger Assembly members put themselves forward. Members of the Assembly Executive Committee have a responsibility to represent the VCSE and not just represent their organisation.
 
Committee meetings are usually held four times a year. A proportion of the Committee also attend Northumberland County Council’s VCS Liaison Group which meets quarterly and is held at different venues across the county. On occasion members may be asked to participate in working groups on issues.
 
Travel expenses are paid to Committee members and members hold office for a minimum of two years( this is dependent on funding which is currently only available until March 2019)
