Advisory Board

The Society doesn't yet have, but really needs good and effective ways to decide things, get advice and help – put simply more ‘boots on the ground’! We have had a preliminary Advisory Board of volunteers, and it is time to replace this with a group of volunteers to become the Journal of Fair Trade Society’s Founding Board. Membership is required to join the Founding Advisory Board. Please consider joining as a member of the Journal of Fair Trade Society and then becoming part of the Founding Advisory Board. the Founding Advisory Board plans to work through the strategic issues for the Journal of Fair Trade Society's development and formation and improve the Journal’s credibility and viability.

The vision for the Society’s Founding Board and members is:

• To develop the Journal of Fair Trade Society as a membership organisation: bringing together people who think ideas matter, that thought and action in fair trade is important, and who care enough to help and want to redress wrongs in the world.
• To raise a core budget through membership dues and contributions/donations to stay viable
• To develop and draw up appropriate rights, rules and structures to exist formally and offer benefits to members
• To guide and secure the future of the Journal’s, promote the ideas it publishes and extend its influence.

We offer all of you a chance to volunteer to help us in a range of ways, with different time commitments and more detail on the tasks involved. Please send your thoughts and expression of interest and time available to Pauline and we can arrange for a 1:1 discussion.
