What could you gain from becoming a Commissioner?

We asked our existing Board members how they have found the role of Commissioner over the last 5 years:

“Being a Commissioner is a bit like doing Jury duty, with an unusual mixture of people trying to come together in agreement, as representatives of society”.

“I found it rewarding and stimulating. Enjoying my time spent and the debates and activities involved. I have learnt considerably about areas of the Island and Manx concerns. Overall, I found the whole experience both Cathartic and inspiring”.

“I did not have a clear understanding of the scope of activity that involved Commissioners and was pleased by the variety”.

“It’s not boring. You get to meet interesting people and see what they are doing to develop the Island.”

“Being a Commissioner can make a difference to your local area and the services you receive by your involvement in the decisions made by the Board.”
