South Western Federation of Museums and Art Galleries

The South West Fed Board is recruiting

Join this enthusiastic and innovative group who lead an independent organisation working at the forefront of the cultural sector in the South West.

This is a fantastic opportunity to represent the heritage sector, work with colleagues and engage with other partners as part of a committed and passionate group of Trustees focussed on driving the success of this unique member organisation.

Our Board roles are suited to anyone who is keen to apply their skills and knowledge to benefit the sector, develop experience of working at Board level and enhance professional networking circles.

To register your interest in joining our Board, please read the Role Descriptions available and indicate your preferred role using the nomination form provided. You will then be put forward to participate in a member’s vote at our AGM, when members and Trustees will confirm the new members of our Board.

We have some key board roles available this year including Treasurer and Vice Chair.

Kevin Ward, Board member for the last 5 years now stepping down as Vice Chair said about his time with the organisation “Being on the South West Fed Board has been fulfilling and rewarding. I've been able to make an impact for our members and develop a better understanding of that sector. In turn, this has helped me and my organisation. Best of all, being on the Board has enabled me to make new friends and colleagues. Highly recommended!”

Whilst nominations can be received up to and including the AGM on the 4th July, we would encourage anyone interested to contact the Chair (by emailing info@swfed.org.uk ) by the 14th June to discuss these or any roles on the Board.
