  • Attend FCA Board Meetings to report on progress and, on occasions, will be required to represent the FCA externally.
  • Develop and put in place a robust membership and affiliation programme and develop a business plan to help make FCA more self-sufficient in future years. 
  •  Work with other local Development Trusts/neighbouring communities to identify opportunities for joint working to the benefit of all or to make better use of resources. Put forward proposals to Board for consideration.
