Executive Committee (EC) consists of the officers (Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary) of the organisation and one non-officer National Committee (NC) member and is supported by the Chief Executive.

EC reports at each NC meeting on the business that has been delegated to it. This might include the following:

  • Resolution’s monthly accounts and financial transactions.
  • The day-to-day management of the organisation (including the staff team).
  • Oversight of specific projects agreed by NC.
  • Representation to, and communication with, external partners, regulators, government and other organisations and individuals with an interest in Resolution’s work.
  • Human resources responsibilities.

There might also be matters that come up urgently where NC delegates decision-making to EC.

EC aims to:

  • Support NC in its role of Board of Directors by overseeing the day-to-day work of the organisation.
  • Support the Chief Executive by providing a regular and timely forum to discuss the day-today running of the organisation.
  • Support the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) by providing a constructive sounding board for ideas, issues and questions related to the day-to-day running of the organisation.

Their responsiblities include:

  • Facilitating effective day-to-day management of the organisation with the Chief Executive.
  • Supporting and monitoring the performance of the staff team on the day-to-day direction of plans and project delivery and financial performance.
  • Discussing and considering operational issues, resolving these with the staff team and taking them to NC where they fall outside of the day-to-day.
  • Providing a time sensitive or urgent response to issues that arise between NC meetings and on matters NC has delegated to EC.
  • HR and pastoral support and direction for the staff team, and specific management of the Chief Executive.
