National Executive Meetings
National Executive meetings are monthly meetings used to review progress, share information, address issues and
take decisions. Some meetings are part of other events, such as:
Four times a year: KPI reviews, operational plan review, budget review, checklists review
Once a year (October): National Conference & Annual General Meeting
Once a year (January): Away weekend for planning, training and broad discussion
Once a year (September): Handover weekend for induction and training
Format of the meetings:
Very important for NE members to attend
In central London, often at a sponsor’s office
Usually Friday evenings at 7pm, second or third week of the month
Agenda in advance – anyone can add to it
Organised by Operations Co-ordinator
NE members take turns to take minutes
Chaired by Chief Executive
Actions usually to be completed within two weeks
Anyone can attend, but only NE can take decisions
If NE members cannot attend then stand-ins from NE teams can be invited
Also used to share paperwork (expenses claims etc) and post etc
