About Hastings Community Network
What does HCN do?
Hastings Community Network brings together voluntary and community groups as a huge Board and elects key representatives to speak on behalf of groups at strategic partnerships. There are currently 160 HCN board members representing 100 member organisations.It also provides 4 event meetings a year in which Board members can bring issues forward to the representatives. Essentially HCN provides a formal voice for the sector in Hastings. HCN also feeds into the County wide VCS representational structure, SpeakUp.
As long as you are an HVA member , you can join HCN, or renew your membership.
There are twelve elected representatives in total which form the Executive Group of HCN.
June 2011 saw the election of a new HCN Executive Committee, who will hold office until 2013, when another election will take place.
Membership is free and is open to all voluntary and community organisations working for the benefit of the residents in Hastings and St Leonards. The only criteria is that groups MUST be a member of Hastings Voluntary Action. We ask that each group joining provide us with up to two names of people who will be the main contact for HCN communication and will act as representatives for their group.
To join HCN or renew your membership - We will be circulating invitations to join or renew HCN membership in January 2013, when you will be able to complete the process online. In the meantime you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget - your organisation must be an HVA member before you can join HCN or renew your HCN membership.Membership renewal for existing HVA members will start in early January 2013.
