The foundations of the Society go back to a public meeting held jointly by Beith & District Community Council and Beith Historical Society. At that meeting, in 2006, a steering group was formed comprising Allan Richardson, Tom Hart, Ian Buchanan, Julie Crook, Elizabeth Henderson, Sue Williams, Isobel Monahan and Willie Monahan. From those early beginnings Beith Cultural & Heritage society flourished.
The committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting in June.
As of April 2015 the committee comprises:
Chairman: Allan Richardson
Vice Chairman: Tom Hart
Treasurer: Cath Macdonald
Secretary: Rae Hutchinson
Other Members: Julie Crook, James Lindsay, Mair Christie, Andy Simpson, Sadie McEwan.
