Why Developing Healthy Communities is supporting Boardroom Apprentice

“The aims and objectives of the Boardroom Apprentice scheme align with the purpose and vision of Developing Healthy Communities; to increase opportunities for all. As an organisation, we are keen to benefit from a diverse range of skills and experience. 

This is our third year participating in the scheme and as a previous participant, Our Chair, Emma Kevitt is very supportive of DHC taking part as a host Board.”

Location of Board and Committee Meetings

Currently due to the pandemic, meetings are taking place virtually via Zoom. 

As restrictions allow we aim to return to face to face meetings, however as convenient participants can join via video link to allow participation from those based in other locations. 

We hope that this will allow broader participation in our organisation. 

Face to face meetings usually take place in Derry-Londonderry. 

Frequency and timing of board/committee meetings

Board meetings take place quarterly. 

They are usually held on a Thursday afternoon, 4pm-5.30pm.

Sub committee meetings usually take place 2 weeks prior to the Board meetings on a Thursday morning, 10am-11.30am.
