The OCRF (The Oxford & Cambridge Rowing Foundation) is a registered charity which owns BRCL (the Boat Race Company Limited). BRCL is responsible for running the Boat Races. OCRF seeks two Trustees to fill the vacancies left by the retirement of 2 Cambridge Trustees.
Your role as a trustee is an active one, with 4 to 6 meetings each year and specific responsibilities for each Trustee.
OCRF expects that the new Trustees can add to the skills and experience on the Trustee Board and are adaptable to the changing landscape of the Boat Races. OCRF seeks prospective trustees with an interest in the following areas:
- Outreach Activities: supporting the implementation of the Gemini Boat Race Bursaries and encouraging rowing participation in under-represented groups
- Representing OCRF on the BRCL Board
- Governance of charities
And relevant professional experience in that area.
The experience of rowing in a Boat Race is not necessary, but an interest in rowing and supporting the long term welfare and guardianship of the Boat Races is.
