Twinning Committee Member
Do you have an interest in other cultures? The Barrhead Twinning Committee is looking for another volunteer member to help plan activities and accommodations for visitors from our sister cities around the world.

The committee meets a few times a year over lunch to facilitate these cultural exchanges. No second language or experience is required, just a desire to help plan exciting learning opportunities for international guests. If you've been looking for a light and fun way to do something wonderful for the Barrhead community, this is the perfect opportunity.

Subdivision & Development Appeals Board Member 
Take part in how developments shape the Barrhead community! The Subdivision & Development Appeals Board (SDAB) needs one more volunteer member to vote on appeals received by developers large or small.

The SDAB meets roughly once per year for an hour when appeals are filed against development decisions. SDAB members hear both sides of the appeal and then make a decision which best serves the community. No experience is required for this position except the desire to see Barrhead grow responsibly.
