Operational Board

The Operational Board is responsible for the day to day implementation of the work of the Alliance and increases its understanding of what is happening in the VCS across the county. It ensures the aims of the Strategic Board are met and the Alliance has a positive impact on the wider VCS in Gloucestershire.

The Operational Board is made up of people from across the voluntary sector, our forums and partner organisations. Members of the Operational Board are voting members of the Alliance who vote for the Strategic Board.
