We have the lowest number of Trustees in the 30 years I have been involved in the theatre. The present group of Trustees have worked very hard this year both to address the bigger issues of the future of BTC while continuing with the day to day responsibilities of running the theatre.
We currently have 8 Trustees, and should we drop below 6 at the next AGM we would not be able to achieve our quorum to make decisions and therefore be unable to function.
We desperately need people with enthusiasm, energy and realistic and practical ideas to help the theatre, to become Trustees. The AGM is on the 14th January 2020, which is the members’ opportunity to re-elect present Trustees who wish to stand again and appoint new Trustees. Applications for Trustees need to be made in advance of the AGM date so please consider whether you feel you have some skills to contribute to keeping Beckenham Theatre Centre alive and thriving.
If people are interested and want to know more about the role of a trustee do email me on: firstname.lastname@example.org There is also a form which goes out with AGM Notice that needs to be returned to the Theatre by the 30th December 2019. It can also be downloaded here, Trustee Nomination Form
Please seriously consider becoming a trustee if you want the good work of Beckenham Theatre to continue.
