CISLI held an Extraordinary General Meeting on Saturday 23 September. This was to deal with two Motions proposed by the Committee, held over from the AGM in June. We also used it as an opportunity to discuss and adopt the Occupational Health and Safety Policy developed by our sub-Committee.
There was a low turnout and the meeting was not quorate, but the EGM followed IDS procedures in asking those present if they wished to go ahead nonetheless with the meeting.
Both Committee Motions were passed. The Student Representative position has now become the Member Care Liaison, currently filled by Ciara Grant. Changes have been made to our CISLI Constitution to enable us to more flexibly deal with issues and developments around the national statutory registration of sign language interpreters. You can see the new Constitution here.
It was also decided to adopt the Occupational Health and Safety Policy developed by our sub-Committee as a working document, subject to regular review and additions. The most recent version of the Health and Safety policy can be seen here.
