FUTURE LONDON REGIONAL COUNCIL MEETINGS
TIMING / ROLLING AGENDA
Following the practice adopted for the past couple of years, I see a number of agenda items as being standard at pretty much all meetings this year, primarily:
Again following the pattern followed in prior years, I suggest the following outline plan to cover key items beyond those:
|Suggested London Council date||Wednesday, 15th February||Wednesday, 26th April||Wednesday, 23rd August||Wednesday, 8th November|
|National Council date||Wednesday, 22th February||Wednesday, 3rd May||Wednesday, 30th August||Wednesday, 15th November|
|EA Board date|
w/c 6th February & Wednesday 29th March
|Wednesday 10th May||Wednesday 26th July &|
Wednesday, 6th September
|Wednesday, 22nd November|
|Other key tops|
I have for now confined the detailed Portfolio topics (for detailed discussion) to the three areas where the National Council is focussed. Reports for all three of these will in any case need to be submitted for each National Council meeting. We can expand these (e.g. for Disability) as necessary. Note that there may be additional National Council meetings, probably by teleconference. Again, I am generally aiming that the London Council meets a week before the National Council. The Whole Council Conference will be on Saturday 14th October.
I would again be grateful if you can please diarise the above dates now, so that we can look forward to a reasonable overall attendance. I’ve stuck with Wednesdays in the above plan, but am conscious that some may have club nights or other regular commitments which may give a problem. If so, let’s look again: I’d prefer if possible to stick with midweek dates. We may need to revisit this following the Council elections.
