The Management Committee

The Association’s members elect the Management Committee. This is done at our Annual General Meeting, with one third of the Committee standing for re-election each year.

All of the Management Committee are members of the Association, and are people with an interest in Copperworks and the local area. Each year they update their skills by attending relevant training events and, where required, buy in specialist expert advice, for example from the Associations solicitor on complex legal issues.

The overall business of the Association is considered by the Management Committee meetings.
