Scottish Rural Action - organisers of the Scottish Rural Parliament - are seeking five new Directors for their board.

Scottish Rural Action is a company formed with the dual purpose of developing and organising Scotland’s Rural Parliament and supporting the development of a rural movement.

The first Scottish Rural Parliament took place in Oban in November 2014, and the second will take place in Brechin in October 2016.

Each year, one-third of the Scottish Rural Action Directors must stand down which means that five Directors will be standing down at the Scottish Rural Action Annual General Meeting on 4 March.

To stand in the election you must complete a nomination form, be nominated by two members of Scottish Rural Action and submit a 500 word (maximum) statement which will be used by members when deciding who to vote for in the election.

If you and/or your nominators are not yet members of Scottish Rural Action, you can apply to become a member at the same time here: Membership is free.

You can find out more about the role of Director including a job description and the process for submitting a nomination on the Scottish Rural Parliament website.
