Build Brighton - I am a trustee!
A couple of weeks ago the members of Build Brighton the local hackspace voted for a new set of trustees.
I put my name forward after a poor turnout of candidates prompted the existing team to reach out to potential members. I had originally thought about putting my name forward but I have been a member for less than a year so I wasn't sure if anyone would vote for me.
There are 3 new trustees and we join 2 existing members making a group of 5. Build Brighton is generally managed by its members but in some cases bigger decisions need to be made which is where we come in, we are also legally responsible for the space so we take a lead in maintaining the general environment and safety.
Build Brighton has been running well but there are a few immediate changes we are looking to implement, these include organising the health and safety equipment, clearing up the space and improving member storage. Hopefully when we are done the space will nicer, more coordinated and better equipped. I am really please to have been voted in and I am looking forward to working with a group of awesome people and helping the space grow.
Moving forward I am looking forward to my reign as director of the space, by which I mean my part in a group of trustees!
