Notice of ACAT’s Board of Trustee Meetings

The Annual Report from Jason Hepple, ACAT’s Chair, presented at the AGM in 2016, highlighted ways in which communication between the membership and ACAT’s committees runs.  It also included information about the pathway for members to bring to the ACAT Board of Trustees’ attention any matters of concern they wished to raise which they feel may not have been resolved through the committee structure.

The Board welcomes members raising matters with the Board that they feel cannot be resolved by the normal decision making machinery of ACAT (i.e. its committee structures).  Items that a member feels need to be drawn to the attention of the Board which they feel have either not been resolved by the committee process, or those that may require direct consultation with or a survey of members’ opinion, or consideration by the Board for inclusion on the agenda of the next AGM should be addressed to maria.cross@acat.me.uk

The meeting dates and the closing dates for submissions for each meeting are detailed below.  The January deadline is relevant to the annual AGM.   

2017:

Friday 13 October 2017 - closing date for submissions 22 September 2017
