Enterprise M3 has a business-led board made up of 20 members split between both the private, public sector and not-for-profit sector.

The Enterprise M3 LEP Board, led by Dave Axam, is responsible for the overall strategic direction of the LEP, establishing targets and priorities and monitoring progress towards those targets.

Enterprise M3's Assurance Framework sets out the role of, and Terms of Reference for, the Board. Each Board Member has completed a Register of Interests form, and the full register can be found here.

The board is advised by a number of groups which provide strategic oversight for different Enterprise M3 projects and funding streams, including:

  • European Management Group
  • Programme Management Group

An overview of the Enterprise M3 LEP governance arrangements can be found here.

The next Board meeting is being held on Thursday 24 September by video conference.

Board papers can be found in the related content section which you can link to from this page and are made available five days before the meeting.

The next meeting of the Sub-Group has not yet been arranged.  The minutes for previous meetings are available here.
