Council of Management meeting - February 2018

The Council of Management met on 6 February. Members were very pleased to welcome two new co-opted Council members – Ellie Wilmshurst and Matt Jelfs – to their first meeting

Included within the business of the meeting, the Council agreed to recommend the re-appointment of RSM UK Audit LLP as auditors to the Association at the AGM in June later this year. The Council also conducted its annual comprehensive risk assessment for the charity and satisfied itself that risks had been appropriately identified and were being suitably managed. This year’s Epilepsy Action Award winners were confirmed.

At the end of the meeting, the Council was joined by several members of staff to hear presentations given by Dr Markus Reuber, the Editor-in-Chief of Seizure and Mr Daniel Staemmler, Executive Publisher from Elsevier who publish Seizure. Epilepsy Action started this scientific journal 25 years ago. Every year, the Editor-in-Chief meets with the Council to explain what the journal has been doing and to outline its plans for the future.

Members were impressed by Dr Reuber’s positive and comprehensive presentation and the excellent progress of the journal. Members were encouraged to learn that the journal continues to be held in the highest regard by scientists and doctors all over the world. Dr Reuber’s immense personal contribution to this success was applauded and recognised.

The next meeting of the Council is scheduled to take place on 10 April 2018.
