Executive Committee 

The Executive Committee meets four times a year, usually in March, June, September and December, and for a Strategy Meeting in September. The Executive Committee is very active and feels that it is important to keep members in touch with the Division and the role it takes in representing them. 

Members are welcome to use the South West Division's library or meeting room, dates may be arranged via the Division Manager.

An Annual General Meeting is held in the spring to coincide with the Spring Biannual Meeting.  Papers from our Annual Business Meetings and Executive Committee Meetings are available on our Executive Committee Papers page.

Members who wish items to be raised at the Executive should send details to the South West Division Manager at least 3 weeks prior to the meeting.
