The NCO Board of Trustees is now supported by a group of Constitutional Members – a total of 24 individuals drawn from the NCO community in the following categories: music tutors, social staff, parents of NCO members, the staff team and NCO donors. The Members group is presently chaired by Neil Severn, a parent.
The purpose of the Members is to act as a safeguard and ensure that the governance and custodianship of NCO by its Board accords with the abiding principles of NCO. Further information on the purpose and operation of NCO’s constitution is available here.
Members were selected by ballot last year from all those who were eligible and expressed an interest. Places may become available from time to time – if you would like to put your name forward for the future, please email Carrie at email@example.com. Eligibility criteria are available from the Constitutional Member’s page.
The Members welcome comments and feedback from all in the NCO community and a special email address is available for this purpose: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember however that all communications relating to your child’s membership of NCO, or about our activities, operations, courses, concerts and auditions should be directed to the NCO office as usual – either to a particular member of the team or to email@example.com.
