The ‘standard’ Committee diary provides for four meetings a year and additional meetings are occasionally required for a specific purpose.

 

The Committee is made up of publicly elected Members as well as co-opted members who provide stakeholder membership.  The co-opted members represent the members of the Fund (trade union representation), District and Borough Councils and other employers in the Fund.  Co-opted Members have the same rights on access to information and voting as elected Members.
