Changes to Our Board

2016 has seen some changes to the Sea-Changers Board of Trustees. After two years of leadership, Pam Buchan has stepped down from her role as Chair of Sea-Changers. We are pleased to say that Pam will remain as a Board member. The Sea-Changers team would like to warmly thank Pam for her input as Chair as she helped to facilitate more open thinking about what Sea-Changers is and what it could be, in particular in the area of volunteering within Sea-Changers.

 

To fill Pam’s shoes we are delighted to welcome Sarah Brown to the role of Chair. Sarah has been working with Sea-Changers as a Board member for a couple of years and brings considerable knowledge of marine and boating sector to her role. Sarah said:

 “I am delighted to be taking up the position of Chair for Sea-Changers. This exciting grass roots organisation has everything, a unique way of accessing fresh funds for marine conservation as well as great people and brilliant projects. What more could I ask for? Well, apart from a million pound grant pot to give out but that will come, I am sure! On a more serious note, Sea-Changers has grown through the recession and that is in no small way because of the tremendous effort of Rachel, Helen and the outgoing Chair, Pam. I feel honoured to take on this role. I want to see this organisation continue to develop and thrive and in return give back to the oceans that I owe so much to. As a lifelong sailor, a coastal dweller, the wife of a marine surveyor and as a one of the new breed of marine planners in my day job I can safely say that without the sea I would be bereft.”

In addition to changes at the top, we are also thrilled to welcome a new Board Member. Rosy Carter, brings a wealth of relevant experience to the trustee role. Rosy has been volunteering for Sea-Changers since 2014 working with co-founder Helen Webb on a number of projects to identify new funding streams and develop Sea-Changers' communication and marketing activities.

Rosy combines Sea-Changers with work in the environmental sector for Lowland Derbyshire and Notts. Local Nature Partnership. Rosy said

"I'm really looking forward to getting more involved with Sea-Changers because I wholeheartedly believe that conservation of the marine environment benefits us all whether we are keen marine users, nature lovers or simply enjoy a day at the sea-side  We all rely on healthy oceans more than we realise and Sea-Changers has an innovative yet practical approach to raising money for projects that help ensure we can carry on enjoying the sea and the benefits it brings."
