Open LGC Meetings Protocol
Members of the public can make a request, in writing, to attend the “open” part of any meeting.
Requests to attend must be sent to the Clerk to the LGC no less than 14 days before the date of the meeting. This allows time for Governors to finalise and agree the agenda for the meeting and for the agenda to be published seven days in advance.
If there is sufficient capacity and space an invitation to attend the meeting will be issued by the Clerk together with an agenda. These will be sent by e-mail seven days before the meeting.
Anyone attending will be shown in the meeting minutes as being “In attendance”.
Persons attending meetings are there at the invitation of the LGC and must agree to: be present as observers only not speak or in any other way interrupt the meeting at the request of the chair, leave the meeting if any part of it is deemed by the LGC to be confidential not record any part of the meeting electronically or in writing.
Failure to abide by these expectations may result in an individual being asked to withdraw from the meeting and potentially be refused an invitation to future meetings.
Full meetings for the current academic year are scheduled for the following dates:
- Wednesday 9th October 2019
- Thursday 5th December 2019
- Thursday 6th February 2020
- Thursday 26th March 2020
