Annual Review of Terms of Reference

Report of the Town Clerk.


The Board received a report of the Town Clerk relative to the Board’s Terms of Reference.


A Member referred to the term (b) (that the Board is responsible for the ‘appointment of the Managing Director of the Barbican Centre’ and expressed their disappointment that the press releases regarding the appointment of the new CEO, which had been circulated to Members prior to the meeting, only referenced the City of London Corporation’s involvement in the recruitment process and did not mention the Barbican Centre Board. They felt that this was a significant omission, as the Barbican Centre sometimes faced fundraising issues due to a perception that it was sufficiently resourced by the City Corporation. The Chair acknowledged this had been an omission.
