Glas Cymru has no shareholders and is operated solely for the benefit of the customers of Welsh Water. In December 2010, 26 new Members were appointed following a round of public advertisement. We currently have 59 independent members – a full complement.
A key role of the Members of Glas Cymru is to ensure that the business remains focused on its primary purpose of providing high quality water and sewerage services to the communities served by Welsh Water. In doing this, Members carry out an important corporate governance role, and for this reason membership is personal and Members are not appointed to represent any particular group or stakeholder interest. Members do not receive a fee. We welcome applications from a diverse and full range of backgrounds in terms of gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation and differently abled.
Members are appointed by the Board under Glas Cymru’s published Membership Policy on the advice of an independent membership selection panel.
A Podcast has been produced which features two of our existing members who each explain more about the role of a Glas Cymru Member.
The roles of a Member is further explained in our Membership Policy.
A list of current Members can be accessed here.
Members can be appointed at any time. If you would like to know more about our membership please write to: Nicola Williams, Company Secretary, Glas Cymru Cyfyngedig, Pentwyn Road, Nelson, Treharris CF46 6LY.
