ARE you someone with community spirit, business nous, and a little spare time?

College general manager Karen Hagan (pictured) said that their training made a difference to people’s lives.
‘‘We are driven by the needs of learners, and the community, which is why we need people from the community to ensure we are providing training that works for learners and employers alike,’’ she said.
‘‘We currently have six board members working with us — and we can have up to 12. The more our board of management can improve its own capability and performance, the more effective we can become, and the better the outcomes for our learners and community.’’

‘‘It is an excellent way to develop new skills and broaden your networks,’’ she said.

‘‘Board members will need to commit time, utilise networks useful to the development and growth of CCAE, have the ability to work with others and a passion for CCAE work.’’
Previous board experience is preferred but not essential and the role will require six to 10 hours of involvement per month.
