Agree meeting dates for the year

Following the AGM, you should agree the committee meeting dates for the year.

Committees should aim to meet once a month where possible.

If face-to-face meetings are not always possible, virtual meetings over Microsoft Teams (or similar video conferencing facility) should be considered.

To limit the impact on the business, meetings should be succinct and last no more than one hour.

We recommend that meetings are scheduled as far in advance as possible to encourage attendance, particularly where members must fit them in around busy work diaries.

The Secretary, in conjunction with the Chair, should decide suitable meeting dates and circulate the dates to all the committee members.
