The Board

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 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

The Board is also supported by five action groups which are each led by a chair from the private sector. These groups report directly to the Enterprise M3 Board and play a key role in providing specialist advice and recommendations on the delivery of the Strategic Economic Plan. Terms of Reference for each Action Group are available on the relevant pages of the website.  An overview of the Enterprise M3 LEP governance arrangements can be found here.

The next Board meeting is being held on 26 September 2019 at the Future Skills Centre, Bordon.

Board papers can be found in the resources section. Archive Minutes of Board meetings are available by clicking on the relevant year - 2011, 2012, 2013, 20142015201620172018 and 2019.
