Part of a nationwide network of Governing Boards
Membership of DAG is automatic for all Governing Boards of Local Authority maintained schools and academies. Individual governors and clerks are members by virtue of being members of a Governing Boards which is itself a member.
DAG aims to help governing boards to further the interests of the children in our schools by:
Governing Boards are directly represented in the election of a member at the Annual General Meeting. The DAG Board is elected by the AGM to further the interest of the Association. The officers and representatives of the Association are appointed by the Board. DAG also holds an annual Governors Conference, although a special Conference can be called to deal with urgent issues.
The DAG Annual General Meeting (AGM) is DAG’s highest decision-making body and usually convenes ordinarily once a year to approve the accounts and elect board members.
The 2019 AGM will be held on Saturday 9th November at County Hall, Exeter, immediately after the conference. Three members will be elected/re-elected to the board. If you are interested in becoming a board member please read the Board member role descriptor. Nominations can be emailed to [email protected]
DAG’s accounts are published in the public domain, are audited externally and formally approved by the AGM each year.
