About the board 2017-06-16T11:18:01+00:00

The Barnet Group, Barnet Homes and Your Choice (Barnet) each have their own Board.  In 2013 we began running the Board meetings together to avoid duplication across the different Boards and improve communication, challenge and decision making within the Group.  Occasionally a Board might meet by itself if it has an important item to discuss and it does not affect the Group or the other entities within the Group.

Board Member appointments

Non-independent Board Members are replaced every three years via an application process. Applicants are appointed by a subset of the Board. Their role is to bring their particular experience to the Board to add decision making.

Independent Board Members are appointed for three year periods and can be reappointed twice. Members are appointed via an application process and appointed by a subset of the Board. Appointments are generally linked to specific skills the Board is seeking.

London Borough of Barnet Member appointees (not the Chair) are appointed annually via the Councils AGM process.

The Chair is appointed by The London Borough of Barnet for a three year period via an application process.

Co-optees can be appointed to the Board to supplement skills
