In May 2012 the Arts Council commissioned David Norgrove to carry out a review of our non-executive governance structure: our national and regional councils. He was asked to consider:

  • the knowledge and expertise needed on, and the size of, the Arts Council's non-executive board (National Council)
  • the role of the Arts Council's regional councils
  • how best to handle possible conflicts of interest faced by members of National Council and regional councils

David Norgrove presented his conclusions to the Arts Council in November 2012, and his report can be read, along with the Arts Council's reponse on the publication page.
