Meetings were held every few months, in January, April, May, June, July and October. Each meeting is split into open and closed sessions (in the following format: minutes of open meeting, minutes of closed meeting, agenda of open meeting, open meeting papers, agenda of closed meeting, closed meeting papers).
Items addressed at every meeting are: the location of the meeting, attendees and apologies, matters arising, General Secretary's report, adminstrative matters, staffing matters, Congress, committee and national boards' reports and a public affairs briefing.
During 2000 the topics discussed by Council in open sessions include:
