BRECON JAZZ STAKEHOLDER GROUP
Terms of Reference
The Brecon Jazz Festival Stakeholder Group is comprised of local strategic representation.
It is attended by officers from Community Regeneration (Powys County Council)
and the Arts Council of Wales. The group allows additional individuals
to attend meetings, particularly when items of business are to be considered
where it could be beneficial to draw on the expertise of individuals other
than those on the Group.
The purpose of the Brecon Jazz Stakeholder Group is to provide a strong
local input into the process of identifying and supporting the Festival operator(s) and to ensure
that the Brecon Jazz Festival achieves real community involvement. The Stakeholder Group is a consultative
forum, not a decision-making body.
This voluntary group is responsible for:-
• sharing information and ideas relating to Brecon Jazz Festival
and its future sustainable development;
• informing potential considerations to be factored into the brief
and timetable for the appointment of future operator(s) of Brecon Internation Jazz;
• providing a local forum throughout the process of putting in place
an operator, the operator mounting a Festival, and beyond the Festival,
offering perspectives on the success or shortcomings of Festival delivery;
• being a forum for galvanising local inputs that can ensure aspects
of the sustainability of the future of the festival.
FREQUENCY OF MEETINGS
The Brecon Jazz Stakeholder Group meets as and when required in agreement
Meetings are jointly led and managed by the Arts Council of Wales and
Powys County Council who ensure the running of the meetings and provide
notes of actions to both the Stakeholder Group and the Steering Group.
All members attend meetings prepared to feedback as to their organisation’s
views on issues under discussion. Any member unable to attend a meeting
may arrange for an appropriate nominated substitute with sufficient authority
to attend provided the Chair is notified in advance.
The transmission of information to members of the group is the responsibility
of the Community Regeneration Service of Powys County Council.
