A Member raised the question of advertising for co-opted member positions to comply with the School’s Instrument and Articles of Governance. A Member commented that advertising vacancies would be regarded as best practice, although in his experience a personal approach by an institution to an appropriate individual was the more likely route used. The Committee went on to discuss the Board’s current composition and diversity and it was noted that there would be difficulties in attempting to address any identified deficiencies through specific advertising. It was agreed that this matter be referred to the Remuneration and Nominations Committee for further debate and consideration.
RESOLVED – That the Committee recommend that the Remuneration and Nominations Committee consider a report on options to refresh and bring further diversity to the composition of the Board.
