Representing local interests in the care of national heritage.
Members of the Trust are now being asked to come forward and nominate themselves for THE ROLE OF CONVENOR in respect of the new Regional Group that will represent the North East of Scotland.
Regional Groups will consist of between eight and fifteen members of the National Trust for Scotland who will:
- Act as ambassadors within their geographical area
- Seek and feed back the views of local people
- Network with community representatives and organisations
- Ensure communities in their area are aware of the Trust's aims, objectives and conservation activities
- Promote the importance of local and national heritage and the value of joining and supporting the Trust to ensure its care
- Support fundraising activities
- Take the lead in organising events such as Local Assemblies
Four Regional Groups represent:
· The Highlands and Islands
· The North-East
· Eastern Scotland
· Western Scotland
The Groups are fundamental to the Trust's objectives of improving local engagement and accountability, as well as explaining the importance of natural, built and cultural heritage to every Scot.
Groups will meet as often as determined by Conveners but no less than twice a year. Convenors and group members will serve for up to four years.
Information about the appointment of Convenors and Members of the new Regional Groups will be provided soon.
