How can I join the CAB?

The CAB are currently looking for a representative for performers.

You can nominate yourself by emailing us a brief statement. This statement should explain the role you play in your community group or organisation. It should also talk about why you think you would make a good representative.

We will ask you to secure an endorsement from a community group or organisation that focuses on the area you would like to represent. The CAB will then vote on all nominated candidates.
