BOARDS OF MANAGEMENT
The appointment of a new Chairperson of a Board of Management is only made after consultation with the Patron. The Patron is then responsible for informing the DES of the change. It is very important that the appropriate form is completed and returned as soon as the Patron has agreed to the appointment of a new Chairperson.
