    Dismiss Notice

Can as governor be 'sacked' or 'dismissed' from the governing body?

    Good Morning
    We have a governor on our committee who always seems to be arguing on every point/agenda item at meetings - in other words he is being a nuisance. The rest of us can't exactly work out why he does that - it just seems to be in his nature to look for an argument!
    Are we allowed to 'sack' him or dismiss him from the governing committee or at least be suspended for a while until he calms down?
    Thank You.

    Being a nuisance is not one of the statutory grounds for dismissing a governor.

    No, you can't.
    But there is nothing stopping any of you from raising it with him, either at meetings or in private if you prefer. The chair could do it on your behalf, if the chair also feels this governor's conduct is preventing the governing body from conducting its business efficiently and effectively.

    You state "So far" but you've had all the answers you need - the factually correct one saying 'NO' and the 'advice based one' adding that you should however address the issue through Governors

    Governors are required to challenge. Is this governor being challenging or being a nuisance? One man's challenge is another's nuisance.
