Report of the Town Clerk.
The Committee received a report of the Town Clerk on the public actions of the previous meeting.
The Town Clerk informed the Committee that a draft Role Profile and Application Form for the co-opted Members for the Guildhall School of Music and Drama’s Audit & Risk Management Committee had been produced. The Principle added comments from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama had been incorporated and that both the documents were on course to be ready by the end of November. The Chairman commented that these co-opted Members needed to be appointment for the next meeting of the Audit and Risk Committee and requested that the Town Clerk arrange interview dates in January 2020. In addition, the Committee agreed to delegate authority to the Town Clerk, in consultation with the Chairman and Deputy Chairman, to agree the Role Profile and Application Form. The Deputy Chairman commented that the advertisement of the position needed to be sufficiently diverse in order that individuals with the required experience are identified and highlighted the recent appointment of an external member to the City of London Corporation’s Audit and Risk Management Committee as an example of best practice.
The Deputy Chairman commented on the political context and the impact this may have on the Augar report. The Principle noted that while this was a consideration the School was taking a wait and see approach given the uncertainly political context.
RESOLVED- That the report be noted.
