Administrative / Biographical History

In late 2003, the Governance Support Committee was created (see RCN 3/50) to review the decision pathway between Council and the RCN's Committees. There was then a break from some of the traditional 'Standing Committees' (RCN 3) to 'Council Committees' (RCN 2/15).

JET was established in 2003/4. It is a private meeting of Council members to discuss organisational direction and running. This includes campaigns, agenda for Council meetings and staffing for example. Works in co-ordination with the Management Executive Team of RCN staff (see RCN 3). Meets monthly.

They receive oral reports from 4 subordinate Council Committees, which were previously Standing Committees (see RCN 3). Their agendas are included in the JET papers for approval.
