Your chance to shape the Chilterns' future
Would you like to join the Chilterns Conservation Board
Would you like to help look after the future of the beautiful Chilterns countryside and take part in decisions on how to manage it?
The Chilterns Conservation Board, which is the main statutory body caring for the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is looking for someone, preferably based in the Chilterns or its surrounding towns, to become a Board member.
Anyone can apply for the position and the closing date for applications is February 14, 2011. It is a voluntary position with a commitment of 2-3 days per month to attend meetings and events.
Becoming a member of the Conservation Board is a great opportunity to get involved in projects to conserve and promote the Chilterns and to influence policies to help protect it in the future.
No specialist knowledge or expertise is needed to become a Board member, but an interest in and appreciation of the English countryside is vital.
Claire Forrest, Information Officer at the Board, says, 'We’re looking for someone who cares deeply about the Chilterns and about looking after it for future generations. In return there is the opportunity to meet lots of like-minded people and get involved in many projects to conserve local landscapes and wildlife.'
