UKCGE receives 8 nominations for Executive Committee

The role of the Executive Committee is to agree and set the work of the Council, to oversee the various activities organised and carried out by the Council, to agree Council policy and to ensure efficient financial management. In pursuance of these aims the Executive Committee meets a minimum of 4 times a year for official Executive Committee meetings, which take place weekday afternoons. Executive Committee members are also actively involved in Working Groups set up by the Council (attending meetings etc), organising conferences and workshops, drafting material and commenting on various aspects of the Council’s work.
