Council of Management

The ACAT Council of Management has responsibility for the day to day running of ACAT.

Members are co-opted, and as listed below.

The work of the Council of Management is conducted by periodic remote meetings and interim email communication. The Council also meets with the Trustees three times per year.

The work undertaken by the CoM covers a wide range of topics, from overseeing issues such as the impact of  regulation on ACAT, conference, appointments to ACAT, organisation reviews, Charity application etc. It is involved in the development of new policies and revision of existing ones such as the Codes of Practice in the context of legislation or change of practice from other bodies such as the UKCP. 

The Council aims to keep in touch with members in different ways – keeping you fully informed and up to date on key decisions from Trustees and Council of Management through the Chair’s newsletter in Reformulation and on the website, and through the e-newsletter twice a year. Please feel free to contact the ACAT office with queries.
