New Group for CIC's to invite reciprical board membership.

Hello All,


Just a quick note to say that, following my recent posts and the positive communication I have received from Directors of other CIC's, I have submitted a new Group for the CIC Forums.


The new Group is a place where CIC's can invite other CIC Directors to become board members, as a reciprical arrangement, to bring in experience, support, or/and, to help to meet with grant funding requirements which specify 2 or 3 Unrelated Directors or Board Members.


If John approves this, then we hopefully may have another useful tool to help each other and our local communities.

I am pleased that I may have helped in some way.

The idea of a pool of volunteer Directors is an excellent idea, in my humble opinion.

This is your baby John, so I would think that it may be better for you to take the reins to develop this idea.

I just wanted to sow the seed, but I would be happy to be involved with this group in any way.

This could be the start of something very positive, very good idea Paul.

Have to be a little square and remind everyone to be careful, if another CIC goes pearshaped due to inappropriate action it could affect your ability to be a Director of your own CIC, although to calm those with no experience if another Director misleads or does something dodgy you are not aware of, you have nothing to worry about.

As well as reciprocal arrangements we could develop the group and use it to attract a pool of volunteer Directors, there is an army of retired Directors who may want to sign up also.

I'll follow your lead on this Paul, happy to send a communication to all members once your happy with how you want to proceed
