    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Gallatown Gala & Community Group are proud of what they already achieve in the local community - an annual gala day as well as Christmas, Halloween and other events for people in the Gallatown area.
    Using the premises at Happy Days in St Clair Street and the Bowling Club, and working with other local groups and the council, they are also able to offer various activities such as dance classes for adults and children; meditation; music; creative writing; Bite & Blether cafe; Talking Cafe; clothing stall and more. And the committee has exciting plans (e.g. a growing space/wild play area; youth groups; becoming a charity), all of which they need YOUR help to achieve.
    General Committee members with an interest in these topics are very welcome. If you would like an informal chat with another member, or to come along to our AGM on 23 October at 1pm, you would be very welcome.

Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!

Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.
