This is not strictly a committee because it acts quasi-independently. It regulates the established colleges of CST, advises new training initiatives and seeks to ensure the standards that the Association demands.
This working group/committee is responsible for organising the AGM. Its remit includes locating a suitable venue, deciding on the best format of the day, including any speakers, and making its recommendations to the trustees. It works with the venue staff, liaises with Chair, Secretary and Treasurer as necessary, reports to the trustees, helps in the preparation of articles/documents to inform members about the event, and seeks to enable its smooth running. Its budget comes from the trustees.
This committee determines what is appropriate as CPD, both primary and secondary, and also what First Aid is acceptable.
Liz Kalinowksa (Complaints Officer) and various other members and lay people as and when complaints arise.
