We need your support.
We’re looking for volunteers to join our board.
Due to retirement, we have vacancies for the following board members to join our successful and friendly team.
Treasurer. The treasurer heads up our Finance Group. We already have a book keeper who deals with our accounting records and VAT returns using the Xero system and provides income and expenditure reports to the Treasurer on a monthly basis. The task of the treasurer is to oversee the administration of our finances via the Finance Group, the production of our annual reports and returns by our Auditors and to keep the Board in the picture.
Minute taker. As minute taker you would take notes of our board meetings which take place every 2 months and distribute them to board members. We try to keep our meetings short, usually 1 to 1.5 hours. Notes taken are of updates, board decisions and action points only.
If you would like to join us, please get in touch with our Company Secretary Alison Parsons at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is Broompower
BroomPower community hydro officially began generating electricity on 18th November 2017. The hydro is owned and run by Lochbroom Community Renewables Ltd, a Community Benefit Society, set up by Ullapool Community Trust (UCT) to identify and run renewable energy projects. It is staffed entirely by volunteers.
There are over 450 investors in BroomPower. 54% are from the local area and 46% from the wider UK and beyond, including the Netherlands, France, US and Japan. Many local investors did so on behalf of children and grandchildren highlighting the long-term community and environmental benefit of this community-owned renewables energy scheme.
