Aspire Sussex Ltd is the charity which has been running adult and community education in – and beyond – West Sussex since 2012. We wish to appoint new trustees to our Board and would be particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who are passionate about education and who have a marketing, finance or education background.
Board and sub-committee meetings are usually held in Burgess Hill. The time commitment needed is around 50 hours per year, which includes attending about 12 meetings per year.
Please note that trustees are unpaid, although expenses – such as travel to meetings – are reimbursed.
Please contact Jacky Hilary at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in applying to join us and would like to find out more. We would especially like to hear from suitably qualified women, or members of any of our local ethnic minority groups, as both are currently underrepresented on our Board.
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
