The Devon Association of Governors (DAG) is the association of school Governing Bodies, including Clerks, in the Devon Local Authority. It was formed in 1993 and is part of a nationwide network of Governing Bodies through membership of the National Governors’ Association.
Part of a nationwide network of Governing Bodies
Membership of DAG is automatic for all Governing Bodies of Local Authority maintained schools. Individual governors and clerks (since 2009) are members by virtue of being members of a Governing Body which is itself a member.
The association has academy representatives on the DAG Board and is currently developing its relationship with Academies.
DAG aims to help governing bodies to further the interests of the children in our schools by:
Governing Bodies are directly represented in the election of a member at the Annual Governors’ Conference (formerly the Annual General Assembly). The DAG Board is elected by the Conference to further the interest of the Association between Conference meetings. The officers of the Association are elected by and from the Board, as are its representatives on the National Governors’ Association. The Conference normally takes place once a year, but a special Conference may be called to deal with urgent issues.
The DAG Annual General Meeting (AGM) is DAG’s highest decision-making body and usually convenes ordinarily once a year to approve the accounts and elect board members.
DAG’s accounts are published in the public domain, are audited externally and formally approved by the AGM each year.
