Membership of the Trust is open to anyone who is a resident within the Kirkcowan Community Council Area.

By becoming a member, you gain full voting rights at General Meetings and are entitled to stand for election as a Director. To nominate someone for election as a Director, you must also be a member of the Trust.

There is no cost in becoming a member of Kirkcowan Community Development Trust and liability of members is limited to £1.

Who manages the Trust and makes decisions about it?

The affairs, property and funds of the Trust are directed and managed by a Board of Directors.

The Board consists of:

  • Elected Directors comprising of up to six individual persons elected as Directors by the Ordinary Members and who themselves must be Ordinary Members;
  • Appointed Directors comprising of up to two individual persons appointed by Kirkcowan Community Council.

Each year, one-third of the Elected Directors will retire from office but will be eligible for another three-year term. After this the Director must wait a year before being standing as a Director again.

Anyone wishing to stand as a Director is expected to support the purposes of the Trust and must follow the rules and guidelines as set out by the funders and the Trust.
