Board Member Induction pdf icon PDF 127 KB

Report of the Town Clerk.

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Town Clerk which set out a proposed structure for a formal induction programme for new Board Members.

 

With reference to the suggested overview of the City Corporation and its relationship with the Barbican, it was commented that this would be particularly beneficial to new external Members. It was advised that the City Corporation would also soon be arranging a similar overview session for existing co-optees and external Members serving on its various committees, as there was a consciousness that this was an area in which there had previously been a gap.

 

The suggestion was made that it might be helpful for new external Members to also have a meeting with an existing external Member, to help get a sense of the sort of outside challenge that was useful for the Board. This led to a wider discussion concerning the possibility of introducing more informal opportunities for Board Members to interact, which it was agreed should be considered in due course.

 

It was also suggested that as part of their introductory meeting with the Managing Director, new Members should be provided with a briefing on items such as the Cultural Hub and Centre for Music, to ensure they were fully aware of the wider context of change in which the Barbican was operating.

 

RESOLVED: That the proposed induction programme set out in the report be approved.
