DCFA Board Member

Dudley Caribbean and Friends Association’s board of trustees invite applications for new trustees to sit on its board to help the charity sustain and grow and provide effective corporate governance.

The charitable objective of DCFA is to promote the benefits of inhabitants of the Black Country area of the West Midlands without distinction of sex or political, religious or other opinions by associating the local authorities, voluntary organisations and inhabitants in a common effort of advance education and to provide facilities in the interests of the social welfare for recreation and leisure-time occupation.

Trustees are asked to assume oversight of a specific governance concern for the charity. This could be: safeguarding, legal compliance, longer term fundraising strategy, policy review or other projects.
In addition to participating in email correspondence trustees are expected to attend:

• Four board meetings per year
• The AGM

The Board of trustees has ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of the charity, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering the charitable outcomes for which it has been set up. Board membership is voluntary and unpaid though standard class travelling expenses incurred as a result of charity business are reimbursed.

Following a recent trustee skills audit the trustees have identified skill gaps and are thus particularly keen to receive applications from those with expertise in charity finance/accountancy and/or charity law and governance and/or business development/fundraising. If you have other skills that you think would benefit our organisation, please contact Mr Levene Bruce, Manager, on 01384 858086 for further details.

Applicants are advised to review the role of the charity trustee before applying.
