Constitution Building & the Future of Seed

 

We need your help! Get involved in our Restructure Committee as we continue into the ‘Constitution Building Phase’.

When you hear the words ‘Burning Seed’, what springs to mind? Is it governance structures? Legal entities? Committees? …. No?

Well believe it or not, there’s a team of people behind Burning Seed that *absolutely love* a good organisational spreadsheet or project plan, and they’re needing your assistance.

The Restructure Sub-Committee has spent the last year meeting, developing and delivering a Community Consultation Process (final report coming next month!). We are now looking at drafting a constitution for the new entity that will oversee Seed, and need some helpful hands!

Are you good at governance? Or at understanding the ins and outs of constitution building?  Passionate about change management? Do you know a lot about not-for-profits?

If so, then you can help the Restructure Sub-Committee work through the next phases to create the Future of Burning Seed including;

  • Selection of legal entity type (either a co-operative, company limited by guarantee, or incorporated association)
  • Constitution development
  • Developing a memorandum of understanding between Red Earth City and the new entity
  • Electing of founding board of directors

You can read the full position description here. We know positions descriptions can sound dry, but this is a real opportunity to be involved in how Seed looks for years and years to come.  Once you’ve read the position description and decided that you’re interested in joining the team, you can register here.  Registration closes Sunday August 26th. Interviews with the current Restructure Committee members will be hosted the following week.

For more information on what the Future of Seed process has looked like so far and who else is on the committee check out our info page.
