Meeting Format

The aims and actions identified within this strategy will be taken forward through regular meetings of the Networks. This will be facilitated through a structure including:

Representation from each Network

Network Manager, Chair (or nominee) and two Management Committee representatives.

Chair and Secretariat

Position of Chairperson will be rotated between the three Networks for each meeting. Secretariat support will be provided by the Network chairing the meeting.

Quorum for Meetings

No fewer than two representatives from each Network at a meeting.

Code of Conduct

This will be modelled, developed and agreed on the East Down Network’s Code of Conduct.

Frequency of Meetings

Quarterly meetings (four per year)


Meetings will be rotated between the three Network areas.

Decision Making

This strategy was agreed and implemented by the management boards of the three Community Networks.
