Present:
Mr. Sean Neeson MLA

Mr. Leslie Cree MLA

In Attendance:

Note:

As there was no quorum the Northern Ireland Assembly and Business Trust Board of Trustees did not follow the Agenda Items but had a general discussion about the structure of the Northern Ireland Assembly and Business Trust.

From this meeting the following key issues were raised:

  • The need for younger middle management to be involved in the training programmes
  • The need for a good industrial spread of members
  • The need for a good geographical spread of membership
  • The need for the Board of Trustees to be outreaching
  • The need for relevant education programmes

The following ideas to be considered:

  • The working group (Alec, Trefor and Katherine) on business programmes would like a copy of who the secretariat has been targeting. Kate agreed to forward the lists.
  • Raising awareness through publicity
  • Cross over business contributing to developing good policy by developing education programmes on key issues and concerns of the business sector
  • Reviewing the aims and objectives
  • Consider approaching the Dail in order to establish a similar scheme.
  • It was also agreed a letter would be issued to Lord Ballyedmond inviting him to attend the next Board meeting.
