Becoming a Governor
Governors play a vital role in ensuring the success of Northern School of Contemporary Dance. The School has sixteen governors in total, including the Principal, staff and student members. Vacancies for these positions arise from time to time.
Although the role is unpaid, it offers individuals the opportunity to use their skills and experience, not only to contribute to the success of the School and its students, but also to the development of dance locally, nationally and internationally and to help shape the art form of the future. The process for the selection and appointment of members is outlined in the document the Procedure for the Appointment of Members of the Board of Governors and its Committees.
If you think you may be interested in applying to join the Board please contact the Clerk to the Governors at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance, who will be delighted to talk to you further about any opportunities that are available.
