Heritage Alliance seeks new Trustees

Heritage Alliance seeks new Trustees

We are looking for outstanding candidates to help build on our twelve years of rapid development as the voice of the independent heritage movement.

Three of the Alliance’s much valued Trustees are due to step down in December 2014. The Chairman Loyd Grossman is already calling on members to recommend potential candidates by 30th September.

We are looking for outstanding candidates to help build on our twelve years of rapid development as the voice of the independent heritage movement. After a skills audit earlier this summer, the Board is looking for Trustees with knowledge and skills preferably, but not exclusively, in Historic Religious Buildings, Access, Education and Interpretation, and Fundraising and/or Change Management.

Further details including the Trustee role description and the process for nomination can be found at http://www.theheritagealliance.org.uk/trustee-call-for-nomination/. These are voluntary positions but expenses will be paid. The deadline for nominations is 30th September, interviews will be held at the end of October and elections will take place during the Alliance’s AGM on 4th December.

The Power of Heritage: The Heritage Alliance’s Manifesto 2014/5

July 16, 2014

The Power of Heritage: The Heritage Alliance’s Manifesto 2014/5

The Heritage Alliance, as the voice of the independent heritage movement, has today published its Manifesto for 2014/5. The Manifesto, The Power of Heritage, calls on all political parties to commit to 12 amendments affecting national legislation and policy so that the benefits of heritage – social economic, educational and environmental – can be better realised by government, communities and individuals.

The 12 amendments range from a reduction in the rate of VAT to securing a viable future for Historic England, from promoting access to Historic Environment Records to preventing the last minute demolition of  buildings about to be listed through ‘interim protection’.

Loyd Grossman, Chairman of the Heritage Alliance, said:

"In the run-up to the General Election, we want to see heritage recognised as the national asset it so clearly is.  A range of fiscal, social and energy policies affect our heritage as well as the more obvious planning regime. We want a policy framework that encourages individuals, businesses and local authorities to realise the power of our heritage, not wreck it through ignorance or neglect". 

All 12 amendments are within the power of government and are aimed at motivating owners, managers, developers, charities and individuals to take on more responsibility for our heritage. Heritage Alliance members will be asked to use their contacts to take the manifesto and its messages to political interests and others before and after the 2015 election.  

For the manifesto see www.theheritagealliance.org.uk/manifesto. The press release is available for download here, while the online supplementary briefings are available at www.theheritagealliance.org.uk/manifesto/briefings/
