We are recruiting candidates to form RicNic’s first Associates Council for alumni aged 25 and under.
We have lots of exciting plans for RicNic in 2019 and beyond, and we're very keen to get RicNiccers involved from the start of the process! Our participants and their voices are central to RicNic and we want to ensure that they – and you – have an impact on the future of the organisation: from the launch of new branches to the development of year-round branches we can offer to young people.
The Associates Council will meet up to 4 times a year and will work closely with RicNic staff and trustees to advise on new projects and branches, working with community and education partners to spread the word about RicNic and develop access to our projects. The Council will liaise with participants in the different branches, supporting their productions and mentoring individuals. The Council will also develop events to support the charity’s fundraising throughout the year, including organising an alumni gala performance.
A Council representative will also be invited to attend RicNic Trustee meetings throughout the year.
