Later Life Choices Glenrothes (LLCG) provides day services and help to stay at home services to older people in Glenrothes and the surrounding area that enhance their quality and enjoyment of life by encouraging interaction, mental & physical activity, and companionship.
No specific experience is required to join their Board of Directors but you should have a drive to want to make life better for older people and their carers. As a Board Member you will help steer the organisation using your own experience and perspectives, while at the same time gaining valuable experience in management and governance. The key attributes required are commitment, enthusiasm, and a willingness to actively participate in Board Meetings. Board members are also expected to join one of the Board Sub-Groups and be prepared to take on a share of the work involved within these groups. Sub-groups are Fundraising, Finance, and Strategy.
Meetings take place on the second last Wednesday of every month at 4pm.
The Chair is happy to chat informally by phone with potential applicants to give more details about board membership and roles, to discuss the individual's skills and experience, and to answer any questions.
Upon receipt of a completed application form applicants will be invited for interview with the Chair and one other Board member.
Initial induction training is conducted by the Chair who will explain how LLCG operates, its goals, ongoing projects and opportunities, and how the organisation is involved with the wider community (including our sponsors). At this meeting the new board member is encouraged to consider how their skills and experience can best be used, and any need for further training will be discussed. The new member will be given a comprehensive induction pack.
The new member will meet with the LLCG team at Scott Road, and the managers will explain their roles.
Ongoing support and training is given as required.
