News: Trustees Wanted

Posted on 18th November 2015

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 jhilary@light.demon.co.uk 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.

Testimonials

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."

"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."

(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
