LMN in 2017 and beyond

Best wishes from London Metropolitan Network with hopes for a productive 2017.

As reported last year, LMN has entered into an agreement with UCISA to create a new LMN-sponsored UCISA London Group. This group will pick up a number of the activities proposed in the LMN Business Plan. LMN will continue to operate as the sponsor of the activity, leading its Steering Group, alongside other elements of its business supervised by its Board.

You can read the full details here.

The news item about the new Group is here.

More details about the benefits of the new Group can be found here.

Updating the LMN Members’ Register

It is important that we know who are the current Member Representatives to ensure that we are able to communicate with you about the new group.

Membership Application or Update.

Call for nominations to the LMN Board

LMN has vacancies for up to six additional members of its Board. The Board will have an important role in supervising its on-going business, including the relationship with UCISA. The Board will nominate a Steering Group for the new UCISA London Group.

To be a Board member, you need to be the Member Representative of an LMN Member organisation and you need to be able to attend Board meetings (in person or via teleconference) at least once each six weeks (sometimes more often). You will also need to be able to commit to join an LMN Working Group (for example, the Steering Group for the new LMN-sponsored UCISA London Group), which may take a further one day per month.

If you would like to make a nomination to the LMN Board, please use the following link:

LMN Board Nomination form.

NOTE: if you are Member Representative, you can also use the form to nominate someone for an LMN Steering Group. That person does not have to be a Member Representative but should be an employee of an LMN Member Organisation and have the agreement of her/his organisation to devote time to the activity.
