There are seven volunteer directors on the Board who deliver the strategic vision, each designated responsibilities which complement the skills they bring. In this manner the key tasks are project managed to specific deadlines and within financial boundaries. The Board meets fortnightly to discuss progress and strategy.
There are currently four paid staff members managing the day to day operations, each with skills in different areas of the organisation, from practical forestry and project management, to administration and marketing. Each member of staff has a line manager, an informal mentor, and all are supported by an internal HR person. The company Treasurer manages the day to day finances of the charity.
There are currently 200 members on the charity’s membership list. Only permanent residents in Kilfinan who are on the electoral roll can be full members. For those who don’t fulfil these conditions, we accept associate members. Associate members cannot vote at KCFC meetings, but their contribution is always welcome.
*To qualify as a competent body and undertake applications for Community Right to Buy we had to restrict our full membership in this way.
New directors are always welcome, if you feel you would like to get involved, please contact the office on 01700 811159 or speak to any of the directors.
