What your Board does

Much of the Board’s work happens behind the scenes but at any given time the Directors are working on a range of projects to benefit members and further the work of the Association.

Board meetings

Board meetings happen quarterly throughout the year.

Since Inspire in Oct 2018 your board of directors has met virtually on the 25th October and the 19th December.

In the October meeting we focussed on Inspire and the feedback from those who attended. We’ve also surveyed those who did not attend. We discussed the new code of conduct, and the feedback from a handful of the members has led to some revisions.

In the December meeting we reviewed the New Member Day launched in 2018 and have agreed some changes for the future.

We’ve reviewed the criteria for the professional member qualification and will be clarifying the guidelines.

We’ve planned the boot camps/masterclasses for 2019.

We’ve agreed limited participation in World Speech Day.

We’ve reviewed preparations for the 2019 & 2020 conventions.

In January, the board will be meeting to focus on strategy for the next few years.
