Could you be a volunteer Governor?

We are midway through this year’s national volunteers week. As part of our Governor awareness celebrations we are kicking off this sunny Monday morning with a profile from Lachman Jassi.

Lachman Jassi

Lachman is one of three a public Governors representing the Black Country. As part of his role, Lachman sits on the Trust’s membership engagement panel, which focuses on the best ways to communicate with our membership* as well as local communities.

Talking about his role Lachman said: “I feel that being a public governor in the Black Country for WMAS has given me the opportunity to find out more and play a part in how the service is run. It has given me an insight into how the service resolves operational demand with its unique methods.

“As a Governor, I feel I can give views, which I would hope are useful for the service.”

Lachman’s working background was in the manufacturing and engineering industry, particularly production and design. Lachman also volunteers as a Magistrate, sitting in a variety of courts throughout the Black Country and sometimes in other judiciary areas. This is something that he has been doing since 1999.
