The MCofS Board is responsible for the governance of the Council and consists of 8 elected directors, each of whom is responsible for a specific area of activity which contributes to the achievement of the MCofS Strategic Plan. We are now seeking nominations from MCofS individual members and members of MCofS clubs to stand for election to our Board of voluntary directors.
Candidates will have a commitment to mountaineering, hill walking or climbing activities, and should be prepared to instigate projects which are relevant to our strategic aims. As such, the duties are likely to include chairing an advisory group of volunteers, which will inform and support the work of our officers.
The work - with a small team of colleagues, and officers, whose shared aim is to represent, support and promote Scottish mountaineering - should be very rewarding.
We wish nominees to be aware of the commitment required. Whilst we pay expenses, the work is voluntary and will require significant time and energy. In addition to experience gained in mountaineering activities, suitable nominees will benefit from:
• Familiarity with the way company Boards work, ideally in a not-for-profit environment
• Understanding of the general principles of corporate responsibility
• Experience of the voluntary sector
• Appropriate interpersonal skills, including an ability to communicate effectively, both written and oral
• Being computer literate, with ready access to email and the internet
The minimum age for candidates is 16 and MCofS positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, or religion or belief.
We anticipate having elections for three vacancies at the next AGM. One of these will be for the director responsible for Mountain Safety and Training, a role for which we anticipate a co-optee will be appointed in the short term, and stand for election at the AGM.
We are particularly interested in individuals with skills and experience gained in Marketing, membership development and sponsorship; and Corporate affairs, including the legal implications of running a limited company, and human resources.
Nominees should plan to participate in the MCofS AGM which will be held at Glenmore Lodge, by Aviemore, on Saturday 4 September 2010, at 16:00.
This is a fantastic opportunity to put something back into mountaineering and to help shape the future of the MCofS.
