HACC Rules of Membership

Rules of membership

The following principles apply for eligibility for membership:


Record of attendance

The record of attendance will be published annually. Should a representative miss three consecutive meetings they will be contacted and reminded of the need to attend. Should attendance not become regular (any two missed in the next four is not regular) the Chairman has the power to ask the body represented for a replacement. If matters are not improved, then the Chairman is empowered to exclude the body concerned. Such exclusion shall be reported to the other members of HACC as soon as practicable.
