How we are governed

EESG Board

  • The Board will normally meet four times per year, two of which will be shorter audio-conferences, normally limited to one hour
  • To minimise travel, energy use and CO2 emissions, and to facilitate participation by members who are busy and/or located away from London, the Board will seek to implement the effective use of 21st century communications technologies including a virtual office, social media, online and audio-conferencing, web forums, file sharing, voice-over-internet protocol, but not forgetting the importance of face-to-face team meetings and social events
  • Business will be progressed by e-mail and telephone as far as practicable 
  • One meeting (near to Christmas) will be the Annual Meeting, and will be followed by the EESG Annual Lecture
  • Working groups will meet as needed, possibly on the same day as the main committee
  • The Board seeks to link to all the Institution’s regions to facilitate the dissemination of learning between Regions and Divisions and Groups.

Working groups for specific activities

Ad hoc working groups are created to arrange specific activities or to address specific tasks. These groups will comprise at least one member of the Board of EESG, plus other people as appropriate, and will report directly to the EESG Board. Working groups are made up of Institution members and others drawn from outside the Institution, with appropriate expertise.

The Board seeks to always have at least one (and ideally more) members who are also members of the Young Members

The Board seeks to maximise the opportunities for YMB members, and younger members generally, to participate in EESG activities through the working groups.
