Our Board currently meets every two months for approximately 1 ½ hours on a Wednesday evening from 6:00 pm- 7:30pm. Board meetings are held at our head office at 39 Seymour Street, Lisburn.
There is also a Finance, Audit and Risk sub-committee and a Human Resource Governance and Nominations Committee which meets prior to board meetings which a small number of board members attend with the Chief Officer.
