Other Opportunities

There are five Fèis representative vacancies on the Board, to be filled on a proportional basis as follows:

  • Two nominees from Fèisean in the area served by The Highland Council
  • Two nominees from the Fèisean in the area served by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar
  • One nominee from Fèisean in all other areas (outwith Highland, the Western Isles and Argyll & Bute)

If based in one of the areas listed above where there is currently a vacancy, your Fèis is entitled to nominate one person to stand for election to the Board. All Fèisean will be entitled to vote in any election held following nominations. I would strongly urge you to take part in the process to ensure that Fèisean nan Gàidheal’s Board remains representative of local Fèisean.

Nominations will take the form of an application from an individual, countersigned as being a nominee of your Fèis. Further information, an application form and role description for Board members is available to download on the right hand side of this page. Your Fèis may only make one nomination so it will be for your committee to decide who your nominee will be. If a member of your Fèis committee is currently on the Board, you may not nominate anyone else at present.

Application forms must be completed as fully as possible, signed by the applicant and a representative of the nominating Fèis (who must be a different person to the applicant), and received by me either by post, or e-mail or personal delivery, not later than 5pm on Monday 6 November 2017. Nominations received outwith the deadline will not be accepted.
