Followed by a CPD element for you as Pip Weitz (Research and Development and Director) and Victoria Sharman (Ethics and Standards Director) will be facilitating a one hour session ‘10 tips to implementing GDPR’ (General Data Protection Regulations), which as you know, come into law on 25th May.
- At 11.00am the Directors will present their reports and the accounts, and there will be a courtesy, non-legal, vote for the members to signal their approval of the accounts.
The reports, development plan and accounts will also be made available in advance under ‘About Us’ on the ACTO website, for ten months, after which they will be moved to the members forum, to make way for the 2019 AGM.If you would like to vote by proxy, please let the ACTO Chair, Sarah Worley-James have your proxy via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Thursday 10th May.
