HGI Board Member Vacancies
Could you join our Board?
The HGI Board is currently looking for new Board members to expand its expertise. In particular, we are currently keen to recruit a second Peer Group Representative (from our MHGI membership).
We would also welcome anyone with a particular areas of expertise, such as business development and PR/marketing skills, to our team – we're looking for people enthusiastic about supporting the HG approach and promoting its many benefits to as wide an audience as possible.
The Board holds its meetings every two months in the evening via Zoom, and members are occassionally recruited to sub-committees to work on specific projects. All posts are voluntary and represent a donation of time to the Institute on the part of the Board member – for which we are extremely grateful.
