The RAA is a Community-Benefit Society that is responsible for the management of 30 allotment sites across the Rotherham borough. We have vacancies for 2 directors to join our board which operates on a voluntary basis. We are looking for friendly, passionate individuals who have experience of allotment gardening and are willing to use this knowledge to help make decisions on all areas relating to the allotment sites, for the benefit of our shareholder tenants. Experience of being part of an allotment society is desirable. Any other professional skills and knowledge that can be used within this role are also preferred.
Directors are required to follow all the policies and procedures that the Alliance operates, including a code of conduct. Directors must be committed to attending board meetings, currently taking place every 2 weeks, undertake site visits and support the Allotment Support Assistant where required.
Also, as we are approaching our first AGM, all current directors (except those nominated by RMBC) are up for election and are seeking to be re-elected. We are looking for nominations from persons interested in becoming a director. Please note that any personal details may be circulated as necessary if a ballot is required.
Please contact our Allotment Support Assistant Donna on firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a copy of the application form. Nominations need to be submitted by Tuesday 9th March 2021.
