As well as statutory requirements for LMCs to be in place there are a number of other documents that govern how individual LMCs conduct their business.  Most LMCs will have a constitution which sets out the format of the committee, how and when elections take place; the officers required to undertake business and how meetings are conducted.  In addition a Conflict of Interest Policy sets out how declarations of conflict of interest must be made and recorded; and a Privacy Policy sets out how the LMC will handle information regarding members and constituents.  The document ‘Roles and Responsibilities of Members’ also sets out the expectations of members once they have been elected (or co-opted) to serve on the committee.


These documents are accessible below.
