NGN Meetings

County Committee

The County Committee consists of representatives from schools and academies across Norfolk. The Committee appoints the Chair, Vice Chairs and Treasurer. Members are elected for a two-year term at the Annual General Meeting.

County Committee agenda includes review and discussion of key issues and challenges facing governors and trustees. The committee discussions inform the input and views that members contribute to other forums and boards.

Annual General Meeting

The NGN Annual General Meeting is always held on the same day as the conference in October or November. At the AGM, the Chair presents an annual report, members of the County Committee are elected and an annual finance statement is presented. All governors, trustees and clerks as members are welcome to attend.

Structure Sub-Committee

The Structure-Sub-Committee is a composite of the County Committee’s officers and the chairs and vice chairs of the other three sub-committees (see below). It meets once between County Committee meetings and has posers powers to make decisions on behalf of the County Committee.

Communications Sub-Committee

The Communications Sub-Committee is responsible for organising NGN events, conferences and communications. Governor engagement is a continuing challenge, particularly with the increasing demands on their time that governors are experiencing in working with their schools.

NGN/Governance Service Liaison Sub-Committee

NGN members and ESGLS leaders meet regularly. The group is well established as the channel to communicate key operational and strategic issues affecting governors. The open and supportive exchanges of information and views make these meetings very effective
