Governance Team (Executive Officers)
The County Executive Committee is an important part of the day-to-day running of our county and exists to support the County Commissioner in meeting the responsibilities of the appointment and to provide support for our county team and districts. The CEC meets bi-monthly and is committed to being a exemplar of good practice in governance.
All members of the County Executive Committee are charity trustees of the county; this is important, and all committee members must be aware of their responsibilities. When a person is elected onto the CEC they are there to represent the county and in turn are there to participate in decision making from a county point of view. Our trustees are responsible for carrying out their role with due regard to the purpose of scouting and acting as a responsible person.
The CEC is specifically responsible to the County Scout Council and has a focus on supporting :
- our county strategy and development plan
- key policy decisions
- County finances
management and maintenance of our premises and camping ground
supporting administration at all levels
annual census of membership and collection of membership fees
complying with legislation applicable to English charities
The provision and management of professional staff
