The Board as a whole should encompass knowledge of the following areas:
We believe that your strong leadership skills, professional expertise, and your ability to bring in other resources, means that you will be part of an important step change process that will help us deliver the charity’s remit. As a Trustee with strong innovative and practical skills, we need your support to ensure that FHALMA has a clear vision and strategy; therefore we are looking for your skills to help strengthen and underpin our voluntary structure.
We are a small team and so far we have a very good track record in delivering art and archive projects. We are keen to boost our connections across generations. (Specifically annual Huntley conferences, symposia, schools workshops, plus a ground-breaking exhibition: www.nocolourbar.org ). Our legacy means that we attract people from a range of backgrounds, but all who have a shared interest and value the contribution to current social, education, environmental improvements that Eric and Jessica Huntley have made across ALL communities, not only the African Caribbean Diaspora.
If you are keen to support the contributions of Black culture to society at large - you will enjoy working with us. Some of us are descendants from the “Windrush Generation”. Knowing that our archives have inspirational and positive stories, role models and evidentiary documents to inform, influence and encourage educational attainment in young people, is a privilege to uncover. Together, we can make a huge difference to improve the national dialogue: work across other sectors in delivering partnership projects, to reach intergenerational audiences; sharpen or learn new skills, make and build new relationships via our respective networks.
Opportunities may exist for a Trustee to bring one of their mentees to shadow them at one of the sub-committee meetings; Transformation Group: Business Planning; Fundraising; Marketing; Event Planning.
