  • ED line manager
    • Currently Allan. Has bi-weekly calls with Neil, sends a report to the board.
    • Question - what is the role of the line manager? Purely pastoral, or board representative? Technically the ED is answerable to the board as a whole, but the board doesn't currently have board-only discussions.
    • Rob - board meetings are typically when the ED is held to account by the board. The line manager is more of a pastoral role. Should cover professional development.
    • Rob has management and HR expertise and could take on the role - he'll take over from Allan
    • Rob to provide progress reports and assist setting up HR processes for the Foundation
  • Appoint committee members and board liaisons
    • We want to have a board member on each committee, to act as liason. Each liason doesn't have to be an active committee member - just has a formal membership so they can participate in a limited capacity.
