Minutes of the meeting held on 9 December 2016 pdf icon PDF 119 KB

Minutes:

The Director of Finance and Resources updated Members with regard to the recruitment of a Trade Union representative to serve on the Board following the resignation of Susan Lees.  They were informed that no nominations had been received following the consultation with the regional offices of the Trade Unions representing members of the Fund but that an expression of interest had been received from a local Trade Union Member.  The individual had therefore been requested to submit a formal application for consideration by the Scheme Manager and, if the person was found to be suitable, it was hoped that an appointment could be made in time for the next meeting of the Board on 16 June 2017.

 

RESOLVED – That the minutes of the meeting held on 9 December 2016 be confirmed and signed by the Chairman.
