The Council of Management met on 2 October and welcomed Sarah Lawson, one of the newly elected members, to her first meeting.
Council began its deliberations about the 2019 revenue budget and business plan. It agreed some guidance for staff to help them in preparing the early drafts. The final drafts will be reviewed by Council at its December meeting.
Council member Jayne Burton has recently left the Finance & Strategic Policy Committee. Council elected Ellie Wilmshurst to replace her.
Every quarter the Council reviews the top ten risks the charity is exposed to. Part of the review includes a more detailed examination of one of the risks. This time, Council chose to explore the impact so far on the charity of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Members were pleased to note that thanks to early preparation, the charity was complying with GDPR.
The next meeting of the Council of Management will be on 4 December 2018.
