Our Governance

All the information you need about our Corporate Governance including our Constitution, Business Plan, Annual Report and Accounts.  If any further additional information is required on any aspects of this section please email stuart.young@emcouncils.gov.uk.  

Business Plan

This Business Plan is a formal statement of EMC’s objectives.  As a membership body, the priorities of EMC have been developed and agreed by member authorities and clearly presented for review, not just in order to promote understanding of the roles and responsibilities of EMC, but also as a measure against which our performance as an organisation should be judged.
