Could you contribute to the Plunkett Community Co-operative Advisory Group? The Plunkett Foundation is looking to its members to nominate individuals from across the UK to join the Plunkett Community Co-operative Advisory Group (PCCAG). The PCCAG is essential in helping represent the interests, views and needs of the national network of community co-operatives to the Plunkett Foundation and others, particularly in shaping and developing Plunkett’s community co-operative support, membership development and advocacy role. Meetings of the Advisory Group will provide the forum for mutual exchange of views and interests between community co-operatives and the Plunkett Foundation, enabling the community co-operative network to inform Plunkett about what they need, and for Plunkett to draw on the ideas and experience of established community co-operatives. We are looking to elect ten new members to the group to represent current activity across the UK community co-operative sector. This means that we are looking to appoint the following number of seats: • One seat to represent Scotland• One seat to represent the North West, North East and Yorkshire and the Humber combined• Two seats to represent the Midlands, East of England and Wales combined• Three seats to represent the South West, South East and London combined• Two seats representing the co-operative pub sector with no regional restrictions• One seat representing a community co-operative that is neither a shop nor a pub, with no regional restrictions Criteria: Individuals looking to put themselves forward must be affiliated with a community co-operative that is a member of the Plunkett Foundation through its Community Enterprise Network membership strand. We are accepting applications from those who have self-nominated, and those who wish to nominate someone. Please note that all nomination forms require a statement from the individual standing for nomination. Individuals must have a minumum of one year of direct experience with setting up or running a community co-operative.
