ELECTION OF CHAIR FOR THE MUNICIPAL YEAR 2014/15

The outgoing Chair will ask Members of the Consultative Committee for any nominations.  These nominations must be seconded by another Member of the Consultative Committee.  If more than one nomination is received, then a vote will be taken.

 

Message to fellow members of the APP Consultative Committee from Colin Marr, outgoing Chair:

 

Dear colleagues,

 

It has been my privilege to be chairman of the Consultative Committee for the past two years, however I do not want to be considered for continuing in that role for the next year. I am mentioning this now because I want fellow members to be aware of this opportunity and to encourage them to put themselves forward when this arises at the start our next meeting.

 

Also, I want to clarify that my choice of not wishing to be stand does not indicate any negative feelings about the importance of the CC. On the contrary, I think the CC, together with the SAC have crucial roles in trying to achieve effective governance of the APP Trust, particularly now that the future of APP looks brighter and more promising than it has been for many years, and with important decisions yet to be made.

 

Although the job of chairman may be no more than simply chairing the meetings, my interpretation of the role had been broader than that, and it is some of the frustrations that I felt in taking on the broader role that has influenced my decision not to stand again. However, that may just be me expecting too much and this should not deter others from taking on the job!

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Colin

 

Colin Marr 26 June 2014

Minutes:

The outgoing Chair, Colin Marr, welcomed new members to the meeting.  He then drew attention to the fact that some of the nominations of membership received from organisations were conditional to these nominations being ratified by the relevant organisation’s AGM.

 

The Chair then spoke in tribute to Jacob O’Callaghan, who for more than twenty years had served firstly on the Statutory Advisory Committee and then the Consultative Committee.  During this time Mr O’Callaghan had led the campaign to secure listing of Alexandra Palace by English Heritage and the Judicial Review in 2007, without which the current regeneration scheme would not have been possible.   Members present acknowledged this tribute.

 

The Chair then asked members of the Consultative Committee for nominations for Chair for the 2014/15 Municipal Year.

 

Gordon Hutchinson was nominated and seconded, and there being no other nominations, it was:

 

RESOLVED:

 

That Gordon Hutchinson be elected as Chair of the Alexandra Palace and Park Consultative Committee for the 2014/15 Municipal Year.
