The attendees at Members’ Forum are from a wide range of backgrounds. Staff and Trustees will attend, but the majority of those taking part are Branch and Time Zone representatives.
The role of a Branch representative is to attend and contribute actively and effectively to Members’ Forum, as well as to offer appropriate contribution and make considered judgements as a member of Members’ Forum. A Branch Representative will report back to their respective Branch and Centres.
Time Zone representatives take a slightly different role from Branch Representatives. Part of the role as a Time Zone Representative is to attend and contribute actively and effectively to Members’ Forum. A Representative will use any specific knowledge or experience to assist Members’ Forum in reaching sound decisions and keep updated about the activities of the organisation and the wider issues which affect its work.
