Could you be an ACoRP board member?

Could you be an ACoRP board member?

12 Aug, 2019

ACoRP is looking to elect four board members to take community rail forward.

The role is an opportunity for someone to contribute their skills, knowledge and experience to the future success of ACoRP. Whilst the formal part of being a director includes attending the quarterly meetings of the board and any sub-committee which you join, we would expect someone to do much more than just attend meetings. This is an active role for someone who can give their time and energy in a meaningful way to supporting ACoRP develop even further as an organisation.



To be eligible, you need to be the nominated representative of a community rail partnership or community station member, or an Honorary/Individual member – and able and enthusiastic about taking on board members’ responsibilities for the good of the organisation.


Person specification

We welcome applications from people with a range of backgrounds and experience, however to build on the existing skills of the board a recent audit has identified the following areas of experience that would be especially beneficial:

  • Legal
  • Finances
  • Development of social inclusion and diversity
  • HR and personnel

We also particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic (BAME) candidates, as they are currently under-represented on our board.
