  1. I’m considering applying for the post of Chair. I was shortlisted and interviewed in 2020, so I’d like confirmation that I would be considered!
    I’d also be grateful for a chat with the current Chair and/or the Chief Executive. I’m free quite a bit up to 20th September, except NOT the following times and days:
    Tues 12th, Weds 13th evening, Thursday 14th afternoon. Most other times would be fine.
    Thanks, John Appleby
