I am a board member of a charity, ReCap, which recycles furniture and electrical goods to support poorer families in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. Today was our AGM (for the year to March 2010!) and we are holding our own despite the financial difficulties. I’m amazed at the work which some of the other board members put in. I do my best but I have to fit this role around running my training business. The chair, a retired school teacher, is almost full-time and the secretary also puts in a lot of hours. Everyone was re-elected to the board at today’s meeting but I know that the chair feels that we need some fresh, younger blood. I wonder where we find them.
