If so, read on and find out if it would suit you. 

What is a committee?

A committee is a group of people who take on responsibility of managing a community group, voluntary organisation or charity.

The Holiday Project is a Scottish registered charity that has a Board of Trustees - Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer - as well as "Committee Members".  All Committees have responsibilities.

How do Committees Work?

Committees are normally made up of between three and twelve people and should meet regularly to make decisions about the direction of the organisation.

The committee is responsible for making sure that the organisation sticks to its aims and objectives as detailed in the Constitution.  The committee will have overall responsibility of The Project's affairs.

To summarise, being on a committee involves:

  • Having a shared sense of purpose (following aims and objectives)
  • Providing direction and leadership
  • Taking collective responsibility
  • Dealing with compliance issues (e.g. registered charities must follow charity law requirements)
  • Being accountable to stakeholders (e.g. members, funders, service users, the wider community)
For new members of a management committee, this can seem daunting, however, being a committee member can add lots of additional skills and experience to your C.V. as well as strengthening skills you already have.  You can gain experience and skills in a range of areas including:
  • Project Management
  • Budgeting/Financial Management
  • Fundraising
  • Better Job Prospects
  • Communication
  • Training Opportunities
  • Organising Events
  • Community Engagement
  • Experience of being on a Committee
All committees need people with a mixture of skills to be able to meet their responsibilities. Many people choose to get involved because they want to give something back to their local community or support a good cause as well as recognising that committee work can bring benefits to the individual.  One meeting every month is all that is required.
