What does being an ADPAC Trustee or Director entail and who should apply?

Updated: Feb 21


The Trustee and Director positions are non-executive and democratically electable


The African Diaspora Public Affairs Committee (ADPAC) is a civic and social organisation established to improve every area of African Diaspora social and economic mobility. We are an intra connected agency of departments that work across Economics, Education, Employment, Health, Housing, Justice, Politics, Trade & Industry and Media.



We rely on the national leadership of non-executive Directors to create and coordinate national strategy that will be employed by Regional Chapters, headed by Regional Chairs. The national Directors liaise with Trustees to maintain cohesion through cross cutting themes of the various initiatives being undertaken by ADPAC.



Trustees

ADPAC Trustees are highly experienced, connected and well respected members of the national African Diaspora capable of establishing and maintaining public confidence and influence. As trustees, the Chair Person, Secretary and Treasurer will make national statements representing the African Diaspora population to protect our interests by addressing national institutions.



The level of communication will include addressing government directly, the civil service and other institutions such as the police, national health service, local authority (on behalf of the Regional Chairs), the department for education and the CPS etc.



Trustees will make monthly short form videos (3 minute highly effective forms of communication) addressing national ADPAC initiatives that are distributed across all forms of social media and shared with African Diaspora organisations nationally to endorse and support the work they undertake. They also make news and media appearances to comment on high profile events that have ramifications that effect the national African Diaspora.



Trustees meet on a monthly basis with the national Directors of department to establish national initiatives, discuss coordinating them and how initiatives and projects will be rolled out nationally through Regional Chapters on the ground. The Chair Person, Secretary and Treasurer will coordinate budgetary, operational and logistical elements of project management to assist the national leadership to accomplish seamless delivery by employing AGILE methods.

ADPAC Operational overview


Directors of Department

ADPAC Directors are highly experienced within the specific discipline, very well connected and respected within their field. They manage specific departments and build teams from the pool of volunteers and employees to design initiatives and projects that will be delivered through Regional Chapters nationally.



National Directors have full autonomy over their departments to manage the scope of projects with their team. Departments fall under the guidelines of governance with regards to conflict resolution and disciplinary procedures. Other than governance, Directors are free to run departments in a very fluid way to most efficiently deliver the objectives of intended initiatives.



Directors of department will feature in monthly short form videos (3 minute highly effective forms of communication) that convey the initiatives being deployed by their department. They will also make feature appearances on news, shows and industry specific podcasts and platforms that effectively reach the widest audiences to create awareness of our initiatives.

The Strategic Advisory Committee

The Strategic Advisory Committee works in a very similar way to the civil service in creating diplomatic and sustaining relationships that benefit the overall objectives of ADPAC. Its the only department where positions aren't democratically elected or end within four year terms. The strategic advisory committee collaborate with the entire Trustee and Director board to keep them informed of national trends, challenges and potential solutions.
