For the last decade the work of the Orienteering Foundation has primarily been promoted by the Chair and the Trustees of the Board. However for the last couple of years we have been seeking additional Ambassadors, particularly in regions not well covered by our existing Trustees.
To that end we are delighted to welcome:
- Lyn West as an Ambassador in East Anglia
- Wilbert Hollinger as an Ambassador in Northern Ireland
Ambassadors, alongside our Trustees and Chair, provide a vital role in keeping in touch with clubs and individuals in their respective regions. This happens in both directions:
- They raise awareness of the Orienteering Foundation with individuals and clubs in their region, for example communicating what we stand for, our strategy, where our priorities lie, and what projects we are seeking to encourage.
- They are our eyes and ears in the regions, learning for example how we can best serve individuals and clubs in their region, and what projects and initiatives would help local groups.
You can find biographies of Lyn and Wilbert on our Ambassadors page. You can also find biographies of our Chair and all our existing Trustees on our Meet the Board page. Finally you can contact any of them on our Getting in Touch page - please don't hesitate to do so, whether that be just to learn more, if you want to help input into our strategy, or if you have a project in mind that you'd like to discuss.
Lastly, we are always looking for anyone interested in getting involved. You can read more about what our Ambassadors and Trustees do on our Vacancies page. We would be particularly interested to hear from anyone in the North West, West Midlands, or Wales, where we currently do not have a representative.
