The plan will detail issues such as how to transfer Anglo Irish Bank’s 14bn deposits and Irish Nationwide’s €4bn elsewhere within the banking system.The future of staff at both institutions and the fate of the building society’s 50 branches will also discussed.The newspaper said the joint plan would explain how to handle bonds issued by Nama in return for the purchase of loans worth €43bn from the two institutions.Prime Minister Brian Cowen said Anglo Irish Bank’s deposits would be transferred out of the bank by January, but would remain within the state and that loans would be wound down over several years.Anglo Irish Bank will have about €38bn of loans following the transfer of €35bn in property and associated loans to Nama. Irish Nationwide will have €2bn in residential mortgages after transferring €8.5bn to Nama.A bailout of Ireland’s crippled banking sector is costing Irish taxpayers and the IMF tens of billions of euros after lenders aggressively pursued property developers during the boom. last_img read more

How the enigmatic Bramson won investors’ trust

first_img Show Comments ▼ Thursday 3 February 2011 8:12 pm How the enigmatic Bramson won investors’ trust Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsappcenter_img Share KCS-content SHAREHOLDERS’ decision to put Sherborne Investors in charge of F&C Asset Management’s board yesterday resolved six months of tension. The question now is whether new chairman Edward Bramson can relieve the uncertainty that has dogged F&C for years. Bramson, who made a rare public appearance at yesterday’s meeting, is an enigmatic figure who has remained silent in the face of calls for more information.F&C’s board grounded its case against Bramson in his refusal to articulate an alternative strategy for the company.In person yesterday Bramson, slight of build and softly spoken, was just as quiet. Shareholders present were confused and angry at his repeated refusal to step forward to justify his experience or plans for F&C to attendees. Instead, he spoke only a few words about the board nominees.But F&C’s new chairman has clearly won the trust of its biggest institutional shareholders, who were notably silent throughout the noise of yesterday’s meeting.Sources told City A.M. the Sherborne delegation was seen in a Starbucks close to the meeting earlier that morning, congratulating Bramson on his success in the vote before the meeting had even begun. David Lis of key F&C shareholder Aviva Investors, said: “We are extremely pleased with the strong level of support for Sherborne and look forward to continued engagement with the F&C board and the realisation of the inherent value we believe exists in this company.”The result is a deep disappointment for F&C’s former chairman Nick MacAndrew (pictured, far left). The former Schroders finance director had chaired F&C since 2007 and is a non-executive at insurance broker Jardine Lloyd Thompson, pub landlord Fuller and construction group Wates. MacAndrew had urged caution over returning F&C to another period of instability after its experience de-merging from Friends Provident.It will also be a blow to chief executive Alain Grisay (pictured, near left). The charismatic Frenchman had hit out at Sherborne, warning that F&C could go under if not properly managed. But MacAndrew quipped yesterday that despite all of his issues with Bramson, “I can’t fault his timing.” After all, he said, the market valuation of a company tends to lag its internal issues. F&C’s valuation may be low, but it is internally solid enough to yield good growth – the ideal time for a new chairman to step in. last_img read more

FTSE 100: 2 of the best UK shares to buy before the ISA deadline

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Do you use a Stocks and Shares ISA to buy UK shares? If the answer is yes, and you want to make full use of your allowance before the end of the tax year, you’d better be quick. There’s just under a month left before you can max out your current £20,000 quota. And there’s a wide array of great shares to buy right now, in my opinion.Of course one doesn’t need to buy UK shares immediately. Just stashing money inside your tax-efficient ISA wrapper is enough to take advantage of this year’s allowance. But I for one won’t be delaying any decisions to add British stocks to my own portfolio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Here are two from the FTSE 100 I’d happily add to my own ISA today. I think they are great shares to buy for a long-term investor like me.#1: Car insurance colossusThe uncertain economic outlook isn’t stopping me from continuing to buy UK shares. There are many great non-cyclical stocks to choose from today. And one of them on my list today is Admiral Group (LSE: ADM). This is because its 6.2% dividend yield for 2021 is one of the biggest on the FTSE 100.Having motor insurance is a legal requirement, and this means that profits at Admiral remain stable even during economic downturns. The company also has several mighty insurance brands like Elephant, Diamond, and Admiral itself which allow it to keep growing revenues. These brands seem to be rising in popularity and helped the broader group build its market share of new customers last year. As a consequence the insurer added 650,000 new customers to its books in 2020.Be warned, though, that a recent Financial Conduct Authority study threatens to take a big swipe out of Admiral’s profits. It recommends that UK insurance shares like this be stopped from charging existing customers more than new clients on their premiums, putting the practice of “price walking” to an end.#2: Another FTSE 100 share to buyI believe B&M European Value Retail (LSE: BME) is another one of the best shares to buy on the FTSE 100 today. The low-cost retailer’s fallen 10% from February’s record peaks, and I think this represents a prime dip-buying opportunity.Sales at this UK share are going from strength to strength as tough economic conditions put massive strain on shopping budgets. Indeed, B&M has in recent days significantly upgraded its full-year profits forecasts on the back of “strong revenue growth” in the final three months of 2020.That share price fall I mentioned at the top leaves B&M trading on a sub-1 forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) reading of 0.2. This suggests that the market is currently undervaluing this UK share. It’s true that the company’s lack of an online presence could see it lose custom as broader e-commerce activity picks up. Still, I think this is still one of the best value shares I could buy right now. Royston Wild | Sunday, 7th March, 2021 | More on: ADM BME Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Hotshot: Leinster and Ireland U20 back David Hawkshaw

first_img Central figure: David Hawkshaw tries to break clear against Scotland (Getty Images) Meet the former hurler who is now tipped for big things on the rugby pitch Do you get to work with Johnny Sexton, Garry Ringrose and Co? Not at the minute but I’m lucky enough to watch them in sessions and take all that in.Who’s been the biggest influence on your career? Definitely my school (Belvedere College) head coach, Phil Werahiko. He taught me a lot off the pitch as well as on the pitch, like becoming a better person. He’d push you to do your best off and on the pitch.What’s it like to captain Ireland U20? An incredible honour. The best thing is there are 15 leaders out on the pitch, everyone pushes each other and pushes standards.What do you do away from rugby? I’m doing an arts degree at DCU and want to go into teaching at some stage. It’s something I’ve always been passionate about.RW VERDICT: Hawkshaw helped Belvedere College to back-to-back Leinster Schools Cups and he prides himself on his work-rate. He captained Ireland in the first three rounds of their Grand Slam-winning Six Nations campaign before injury struck. Leinster and Ireland U20 back David HawkshawDate of birth 3 July 1999 Born Dublin Province Leinster Country Ireland Position Ten/centreWhen did you first play rugby? I was about six. My older brother played at Coolmine so I followed in his footsteps. I also started hurling when I was pretty young and played for St Brigid’s.When did you have to choose between the two? Only about a year and a half ago. I was able to keep going with both and I’m happy I kept it up as long as I could. I love both sports, but I always knew I wanted to go down the rugby route. From a young age it was always rugby; growing up I’d watch the likes of Brian O’Driscoll and Ronan O’Gara.Has hurling helped your rugby? In a big way. There are a lot of little things that relate to rugby, like movement.You grew up playing fly-half but are at inside-centre for Ireland U20…I don’t have a preference; I’m happy wherever I’m put. It’s a new learning experience.Leading men: David Hawkshaw lifts the U20 Six Nations trophy with fellow captain Charlie Ryan (Getty Images)When did you link up with Leinster? At U17s, a big pool of players came in to train twice a week in the summer. The year after we had U18 interpros, which were more competitive. I’ve been in the academy since I left school last summer.

Miembros Episcopales del CCA dispuestos a trabajar en la vida…

first_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Press Release [Episcopal News Service] La 15ª. reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano del 27 de octubre al 7 de noviembre tendrá lugar en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda, como un evento de “una vez en la vida” que será la “la mayor reunión anglicana que haya alcanzado alguna vez estas costas”.Y los episcopales miembros del CCA están ansiosos de participar en una reunión que discernirá las formas en que los anglicanos pueden profundizar la interpretación de su llamado común a la misión de Dios en el mundo.“Estoy más optimista respecto a la Comunión [Anglicana] de lo que he estado en los últimos años”, dijo a Episcopal News Service Josephine Hicks, la episcopal que ha sido miembro por más tiempo del CCA. “Espero que el optimismo se robustezca en esta reunión”.El CCA es el organismo ejecutivo más representativo de la Comunión Anglicana e incluye a más de 80 obispos, clérigos y laicos. Toma decisiones normativas, aprueba el presupuesto de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana y orienta la agenda de la Comunión para la misión y el ministerio.Si bien no tiene ninguna jurisdicción sobre las 38 provincias autónomas de la Comunión, su constitución dice que su objetivo es “promover la religión cristiana y en particular promover la unidad y los fines de las iglesias de la Comunión Anglicana en la misión, la evangelización, las relaciones ecuménicas, la comunicación, la administración y las finanzas”.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori dijo en comentarios enviados por correo electrónico a ENS, que el CCA “ofrece una oportunidad concentrada para el diálogo interprovincial sobre asuntos de interés local y más universales, y es el único organismo de la Comunión Anglicana que toma decisiones legislativas formales”.Las reuniones del CCA son “una manera clave e importante de que la Comunión Anglicana se reúna”, dijo a ENS Ian Douglas, obispo de la Diócesis de Connecticut y representante de la Iglesia Episcopal en el CCA.Douglas añadió que “si bien la primera tarea [del CCA] es la de promover [o abogar por] ciertas posiciones —no puede obligar a ninguna Iglesia a hacer nada— la Comunión Anglicana misma en este nivel de participación común es ampliamente representativa y celebramos que se reúna ese tipo de representación que abraza las diferencias, diferentes órdenes, diferentes géneros, diferentes personas de todo el mundo, y eso no debe minimizarse”.A los diversos miembros del CCA se les pedirá que consideren asuntos que van desde el estatus actual del Pacto Anglicano y la situación económica de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana, hasta las relaciones ecuménicas e interreligiosas y reseñas de la labor del personal de la oficina y de las 14 redes de la Comunión que ayudan a coordinar la obra de misión y justicia social de la misma.A los miembros también se les ha pedido que informen sobre el estatus del Pacto Anglicano en sus provincias.Jefferts Schori dijo que “es difícil decir qué se presentará [en la discusión sobre el pacto del CCA], por decisiones o declaraciones de principios, aunque ésta es la primera vez que el CCA ha dicho que discutiría la membresía y las formas de progresar en torno al pacto”.Douglas sugirió que “probablemente había esperanzas de que más iglesias habrían adoptado el pacto de las que lo han hecho hasta este momento” y  ese hecho “pone de relieve” la cuestión del futuro del pacto”.Él predijo que la discusión sobre el pacto podría incluir preguntas de cuántas provincias deben adoptarlo antes de que se le considere en vigor y cuál podría ser el marco temporal de su adopción. Ninguno se ha propuesto aún, aunque las provincias han tenido el pacto por casi tres años.“Y luego una pregunta que está en el otro extremo: Si el pacto no tiene, por así decir, como sostenerse ¿cuándo es que el debate sobre el pacto se acabará?”, añadió Douglas.Si el “ejercicio del pacto”, como Douglas lo llama, se acabara, su impacto aún habría valido la pena, dijo.“Creo que la mayoría de la gente diría que de una u otra manera ha suscitado más discusión a través de la Comunión Anglicana respecto a la naturaleza de nuestra integridad. Aun si uno está en contra de este anteproyecto en particular o de la idea misma de un pacto, estamos teniendo sustanciosas discusiones sobre lo que significa ser parte de la Comunión Anglicana y eso es bueno”.La Rda. Gay Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados y miembro clerical de la Iglesia ante el CCA, dijo a ENS que ella asiste a su primera reunión del CCA con la esperanza de que el ejercicio del pacto pondrá a la Comunión en una diferente dirección.“Dada la falta de entusiasmo por el Pacto Anglicano propuesto, espero que en esta reunión el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano pueda catalizar más medios productivos y de colaboración para que la Comunión Anglicana busque la misión a la cual Dios nos llama en nuestros ministerios alrededor del mundo”, dijo ella en un comentario que envió por correo electrónico a ENS.Hicks dice que, al parecer, el pacto “ha perdido muchísimo empuje” y si bien ella “no está en condiciones de decir que nunca se producirá”, sí ve la necesidad de los anglicanos de reunirse y aprender unos de otros. Esas oportunidades, como el proceso de Indaba Continuo de la Comunión debe proporcionar vías “para que las personas se reúnan, pasen tiempo juntas, pasen el tiempo unos con otros en diferentes contextos —dedicados mutuamente de verdad a los problemas de una manera genuina y razonada, no en el contexto de debates en el pleno de algún cuerpo legislativo, sino sentándose alrededor de una mesa con una taza de café y conversando acerca de los problemas”.“Yo creo que ese [modelo] promete mucho más que los anglicanos recobren un sentido más firme de unidad y un renovado sentido de misión común, a pesar incluso de [sostener] diferentes puntos de vista sobre los temas”, agregó.El Pacto Anglicano se propuso por primera vez en el Informe Windsor de 2004 como un modo de que la Comunión y sus provincias pudieran mantener la unidad a pesar de las diferencias, especialmente relacionadas con la interpretación bíblica y la sexualidad humana. En la última reunión del CCA, en mayo de 2009 en Jamaica, se decidió aplazar el envío del tercer y último anteproyecto del pacto, para someterlo a la consideración de las provincias, debido a que los miembros del CCA creyeron que el proceso del pacto para la solución de disputas necesitaba más trabajo.Luego de que un pequeño grupo de trabajo solicitara reacciones de las provincias acerca de ese proceso, la versión final del pacto se envió a las provincias para su consideración formal en diciembre de 2009. Siete provincias (Irlanda, México, Myanmar, Papúa Nueva Guinea, Sudeste de Asia, El Cono Sur de América y las Antillas) lo han aprobado o se han suscrito a él. Dos (la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa y la Iglesia Anglicana en Aoteroa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia) han rehusado adoptarlo y los obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal en las Filipinas también lo han rechazado.En marzo, resultó claro que la Iglesia de Inglaterra no podía adoptar el pacto en su forma actual cuando una mayoría de sus diócesis habían rechazado el documento.En abril, la Iglesia de Gales le dio al pacto “luz ámbar, en lugar de luz verde” al tiempo que su cuerpo de gobierno decía que temía que el rechazo de la Iglesia de Inglaterra al pacto pusiera en peligro su futuro.La Iglesia Anglicana de África del Sur ha adoptado el documento pendiente de ratificación  en la próxima reunión de su sínodo más adelante este año.En la Convención General en julio, la Iglesia Episcopal, mediante la Resolución B005, “declinó asumir una posición” sobre el pacto. La Convención también aprobó la Resolución D008 que prometía que la Iglesia Episcopal “mantendría y reforzaría vínculos firmes a través de la Comunión Anglicana mundial, comprometiéndose con una continua participación en los más amplios consejos de la Comunión Anglicana” y “a profundizar su participación en los ministerios y redes de la Comunión”.Si bien algunas personas han sugerido que la aceptación o el rechazo del pacto podría determinar la futura membresía de una provincia en la Comunión, Douglas dijo que tal posición sería “un punto de partida erróneo” y “divisivo”.“No creo que haya ahora mismo en la Comunión Anglicana o en el CCA un espíritu que quiera fomentar ese tipo de división y ese clase de discusión que tiende hacia la alienación”, afirmó.Hicks, que comenzó su período de servicio con el CCA en su 13ª reunión en Nottingham, Inglaterra, en junio de 2005, cuando los representantes de la Iglesia Episcopal y de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá se habían retirado voluntariamente de la reunión y asistieron tan sólo como observadores luego que así se los pidieran los líderes de las provincias, se mostraría de acuerdo.“El tema más convincente… desde 2005 — en que he participado en estas reuniones del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano y en que he seguido en contacto con los miembros del CCA entre una reunión y otra— es que tenemos mucho más en común como anglicanos que aquello en lo que diferimos, y la mayoría de la gente está realmente interesada en concentrarse en nuestra misión común y no quiere que las diferencias de opinión sobre la sexualidad o cualquier otro asunto descarrilen eso”, afirmó.También están contempladas en la agenda del CCA en Auckland:* La labor de la Comisión Permanente Interanglicana sobre Unidad, Fe y Orden (IASCUFO), que incluye el proceso del Pacto Anglicano.* Los diálogos ecuménicos de la Comunión con un informe sobre la Red de Intereses Interreligiosos [Network for Inter Faith Concerns ] de la Comunión;* Discusión del proyecto de la Biblia constante en la vida de la Iglesia que comenzó en la última reunión del CCA, así como otros empeños teológicos y el proyecto de Indaba Continuo.* Informes y posibles resoluciones para el trabajo futuro a partir de las redes [o interconexiones] de la Comunión.* Discusión sobre la obra de los cuatro instrumentos de la Comunión, de los cuales el CCA es uno de ellos (el arzobispo de Cantórbery, la Conferencia de Lambeth de Obispos Anglicanos, y la Reunión de los Primados son los otros tres).* Discusiones sobre el medio ambiente, la violencia de género y el testimonio cristiano basadas en los resultados de tres sesiones vespertinas, una sobre cada uno de los temas, para las cuales han invitado al público.* Aprobación de un presupuesto para la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana, un debate durante el cual Douglas dijo que “la Iglesia Episcopal como miembro tendrá que ser responsable” por una decisión tomada por la Convención General este verano de contribuir con $700.000, o exactamente más de un cuarto de lo que se le ha solicitado, al presupuesto. El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia estuvo de acuerdo.* Una visita al rey maorí King Tuheitia Paki, el séptimo líder del movimiento kingitanga; y* Un “encuentro de la misión”, el 4 de noviembre, durante el cual los miembros del CCA se dispersarán entre las catedrales, parroquias y misiones, así como entre los centros de las principales hui amorangi (el equivalente de diócesis de la  de la porción maorí de la Iglesia). Muchos de los miembros ordenados del Consejo predicarán en iglesias locales. De regreso a Auckland al día siguiente, el CCA tiene planeado un debate sobre la misión basándose en lo que los miembros aprendieron el día anterior.La 15ª. Reunión del CCA se inaugura con un powhiri en la mañana del 27 de octubre en el Centro de Actividades del Pacífico TelstraClear [TelstraClear Pacific Events Centre]  en Auckland. El powhiri, una parte central del protocolo maorí, es una ceremonia de bienvenida que incluye discursos, danzas, cantos y el hongi, el tradicional saludo maorí en el que dos personas unen sus frentes y narices.Estudiantes de las escuelas anglicanas de Auckland y de la zona circunvecina formarán un kapa haka como parte de la bienvenida. Kapa haka es un tradicional arte escénico maorí que puede incluir melodiosos cantos corales, gritos, patadas en el suelo, proyecciones de la lengua y rítmicas palmadas corporales.Habrá también un momento en el cual los jóvenes podrán preguntarle al arzobispo de Cantórbery, Rowan Williams, acerca del estado de la Iglesia y su futuro.Más tarde el 27 de octubre, el CCA recibirá una orientación para la reunión y concluirá el día con un culto vespertino Estos dos eventos tendrán lugar en la catedral de la Santa Trinidad en Auckland, el sitio de la reunión del CCA.La Eucaristía de apertura de la reunión está programada para la mañana del 28 de octubre en la catedral y Williams será el predicador.Antecedentes adicionales del CCAInstituido en 1969, la membresía del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano incluye de una a tres personas de cada provincia de la Comunión Anglicana. En los casos donde hay tres miembros, hay un obispo, un presbítero y un laico. En los casos donde se nombran menos miembros, la preferencia se le da a los laicos.El obispo James Tengatenga de Malawi del Sur preside el CCA, y Elizabeth Paver, representante laica de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, es la vicepresidente. El Rdo. Canónigo Kenneth Kearon, secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana, es el secretario de las reuniones del CCA.Hicks, miembro de la Iglesia Episcopal y quien ha servido también en el Consejo Ejecutivo de ésta, asiste a la última reunión del CCA de su período.Jennings, que también es presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, concluyó recientemente un período en el Consejo Ejecutivo, que la eligió en 2010 para cubrir el resto del período clerical de Douglas luego que éste tuviera que renunciar a su puesto como clérigo cuando fue elegido obispo en octubre de 2009. El consejo Ejecutivo posteriormente lo eligió como miembro episcopal u obispo de la Iglesia [al CCA].Jefferts Schori asiste a la reunión en su papel de miembro del Comité Permanente que se reúne en Auckland antes del comienzo de la reunión del CCA. Douglas también es miembro del Comité Permanente.– La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Restaurant teams up with diabetes charity to develop special menu

first_img Smith & Wollensky restaurant and type one diabetes charity JDRF have teamed up to make it easier for diners with the condition to eat out.Smith & Wollensky has worked with JDRF to create a special version of its lunch and dinner menu for its London restaurant that displays the carbohydrate content, in grams, of each dish.Dean Benton, JDRF’s Director of Fundraising said:“Calculating the carbohydrate content of each meal is a vital and demanding part of daily life with type 1 diabetes. Those with the condition must inject insulin every day but it’s not just a simple case of injecting the same amount each time. When someone with type 1 diabetes eats any food with carbs, they must inject exactly the right amount of insulin to fit the amount of carbs in that particular meal.“Special carb-counted menus mean people with type 1 diabetes can spend a little less time managing their demanding condition, and more time enjoying their meal.”Smith & Wollensky is also donating a proportion of the proceeds from its Seared Chilli & Garlic Shrimp dish to the charity, to help support research into the condition.

MCH to discuss external audit

first_img Twitter Local News By admin – March 6, 2018 Facebook MCH to discuss external audit Twitter WhatsApp WhatsApp Ector County Hospital District board members serving on the audit committee will meet at noon today for a presentation on the audited financial statements for Fiscal Year 2017.The meeting will be in the Administration Conference Room A at Medical Center Hospital, 500 W. Fourth St. The finance committee will also meet at 4:30 p.m. and the full ECHD board of directors will meet at 5:30 p.m. today for their regularly scheduled meetings in the board room at MCH.District 5 board member Don Hallmark said the audit, while it’s a dull, dry read, is what they expected.“The numbers are what we expected and I don’t think there was anything out of the ordinary on the audit. It don’t look good,” he said, adding “they obviously were spending way too much money.”Hallmark, District 1’s Bryn Dodd and District 7’s Ben Quiroz, were all voted in during a May 2017 election. Both Hallmark and Dodd have maintained throughout their campaign, as well as their time on the board, MCH administration and the ECHD board at the time was overspending and had a problem with overexpansion.“(The audit) is re-hashing a lot of things, the overspending of it had a lot to do with building and buying to build, and if that goes away, the numbers will obviously improve,” he said. “We’re at the point now where it looks like there’s daylight.”Hallmark said since the hospital hired a new CEO, Rick Napper, and new CFO, Robert Abernethy, they have been working out a plan that to Hallmark, “makes all the sense in the world.”The audit also addressed revenue issues with the Cerner conversion, which is already being addressed, Hallmark added.BKD will also present a report to management following the audit presentation.The audit committee may also consider going into executive session to receive the Compliance Report from the Chief Compliance Officer, the agenda shows.REGULAR MEETINGSDuring the regular finance committee meeting at 4:30 p.m., the committee will consider the financial report for four months ended Jan. 31, as well as receive a revenue cycle update by Abernethy.The regular ECHD board will consider the following items:The president/CEO report, including a review of the strategic plan process, a physician transaction review committee process, a quarterly quality report and quarterly human resources report.Approval of the NICU/Perinatal service scope of service and organizational wide program plan.Meeting in executive session to discuss a litigation update on Meisell v.
