Bacta relocates April National Council from London to Leeds

Bacta has confirmed that it’s moving its 21 April National Council meeting from London to Leeds with members invited to meet with the Council over lunch and participate in an informal Open Forum.

Bacta will hold its next National Council meeting on 21 April in Leeds instead of London, the industry body confirmed to stakeholders.

This comes as part of the restructuring and modernisation program that Bacta launched last year as voted by its members.

The Leeds gathering invites all members to participate in an informal Open Forum to discuss some of the key issues affecting member businesses, and will provide more insight into the National Council’s operations, as well as the latest White Paper developments.

John Bollom, National President of Bacta, said: “Historically I think there was probably a degree of mystery surrounding the work of the National Council and how it operated.

“The new National Council is very much a working board with individual members using their specialisms and skill-sets to deliver on behalf of Bacta and its members.

“This streamlined structure means that we are much more agile as an organisation with the capacity to respond quickly to the issues of the day, something which has been particularly important in relation to the White Paper.

“The new Bacta is very much a listening organisation and the Open Forum will provide an opportunity to not only update on developments impacted by the White Paper but also to identify the issues which are important to members and which will help us to define the priorities moving forward.”

Bacta has recently been more outspoken about introducing better standards in the industry for its members, having launched a census asking members for feedback on its current work and potential improvements.

Registrations for the 21 April meeting and Open Forum are now open to members.
