Policy Forum

The HOLEX Policy Forum brings together members of the HOLEX Executive Group and our Theme Leads (volunteer senior managers with a specific brief), which meets three times a year. The Policy forum represents the HOLEX members and feeds back from various external meetings.   The Forum also acts as the electoral college for the AAETO Board, and advises on Network Event programming.
