Are you our next ALCS Board member?

This year two positions are available on the ALCS Board of Directors and we would be delighted to hear from ALCS members who are interested in standing.

What skills must I have?

Good interpersonal and communication skills are vital. Ultimately we’d like every director on the Board to be a positive, dynamic influence on ALCS and its future direction. You will be responsible for significant financial decisions for which you will need to display appropriate stewardship. You will also be an ambassador for the Company in all its activities.

What experience is required?

Being an ALCS director carries with it a full load of legal, financial and ethical responsibilities including, importantly, a duty to exercise independent judgement. Previous Board/Committee experience is desirable.

What’s the time commitment?

With five Board meetings per year as well as various Committee meetings and other events, and with time needed for induction, training and reading emails and papers to keep you up to speed, you must have sufficient time available and the commitment to ensure you carry out your duties to the highest standard.

Still interested?

If you are interested in standing for election to the ALCS Board of Directors and would like further information, please contact Owen Atkinson, ALCS CEO:
