The Chair advised the Committee of his recent election as Alderman for Aldersgate Ward. Given that this would take up a considerable amount of his time, and there could be a potential conflict of interest, he would be standing down as Chair of the RCC. The Chair had served for 5 years, and it was noted that the City Corporations Governance Review had recommended that Chairmen should serve a maximum of 4 years. The Chair would stay in post until the September 2022 meeting, when there will be an election for a new Chair. If helpful, and if the Committee were agreeable, he would be happy to take up a Deputy Chair position for the following year. In concluding, the Chair thanked the officers and the Deputy Chairs that had served over the past 5 years. Members congratulated the Chair on his election and thanked him for his dedicated service.
