Volunteers needed

Forum Advisory Group

The proposal for the establishment of an Advisory Group of the
Applecross Community Forum was approved at the virtual meeting
of the Forum in November 2020. The role of the Advisory Group was set out in a paper on the Forum which can be found in the ‘Minutes’ section of this website.

In summary, the Advisory Group is intended to assist and support the Chair
of the Forum, be involved in the framing of Terms of Reference for the
Chair and review the workings of the Forum. It was envisaged that the
Advisory Group would also be involved in arrangements for a Secretary
but this may be dependent upon decisions made in relation to the
appointment of an Administrator for the proposed Community Fund.
Tom O’Halloran and Jess Whistance have already kindly volunteered to
be members of the Advisory Group. It is believed that ideally the Group
should comprise 3 members who would hold office for a period of two
years. Anyone who is interested in this role should contact the Chair
Kathrine.mackie@btclick.com.

“Shadow” Trustee for planned SCIO to hold Community Fund

At the meeting of the Forum it was also agreed that work continue with a
view to establishing a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation
(SCIO) to hold, manage and disburse the Community Fund. A detailed
paper setting out the background, the current position and what work still
required to be carried out was prepared for the meeting and is available
on the website. A reading or re-reading of this paper is commended. Four
“Shadow” Trustees have volunteered to take on this work and were
approved at the meeting, namely, Fiona Mackenzie, Tery McCowan,
David Mackie and Jon Glover (as Chair of the Community Council). It was
agreed that ideally there should be five Trustees. Anyone who is
interested in becoming a Trustee should contact Fiona Mackenzie fionatoscaig@gmail.com.
