Trustee Vacancies

Shocking Pink is currently looking for experienced people to fulfill positions on our board of trustees.

The commitment is 6 meetings a year (one meeting every 2 months). including an annual AGM. Apart from the AGM which requires attendance in person, each meeting is online and about an hour long, then what ever tasks needed to be fulfilled there after.

The positions of chairperson and treasurer are currently vacant due to the resignation of two of our board members who have had to stand down from their positions due to life commitments this year. Debbie Casson and Tracey Fleming have done a wonderful job supporting Shocking Pink in their role and we are sad to see them leave the board.

The below positions are empty and the board are excited to fill these with enthusiastic, positive and productive people who are right for the role. These positions have been filled by volunteers in the past.
