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 and would be particularly interested in applications from individuals with a Legal, Marketing or Finance background. As a Trustee you will be responsible as part of the Board for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity. Board and sub-committee meetings are usually held in Burgess Hill, but may be held at any of our Centres in West Sussex. The time commitment is approximately 50 hours per year, which includes attending around 15 meetings per year.
We also wish to appoint new Company Members. Our Members are a significant part of our governance system, and highly valued for their external perspective. Our Members come from all walks of life and bring a broad range of skills, experience and background to Aspire. Members are invited to attend and vote at Aspire’s Annual General Meeting. Their role includes the scrutiny of the Annual Report and Accounts and the election of Trustees. Some Members will have a general overall interest in Aspire and others will be prepared to act in an advisory capacity. The time commitment is around 2-3 days per year.
Please note that these roles are unpaid, although expenses such as travel are reimbursed.
Please contact Elaine Schegar, Clerk to the Trustees at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in applying to join us or would like to find out more.
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
