Changes at Clerk to Governors

I will shortly be retiring from all things educational, and will be handing over Clerk to Governors and C2G to the National Governors’ Association. You will be aware that the NGA supports governors and clerks of academies and maintained schools, and does much to promote effective governance across the country. I know that it is committed to finding ways to provide support for you in the future.

If you are a subscriber, and wish to continue receiving updates to the C2G service, you will need to resubscribe as your existing subscription will cease on 9 June 2016. I will email subscribers in early June with a link to enable them to resubscribe.


If you would like to subscribe to this website using the Modern Governor mobile app’s reader of governance blogs, then the following video should help. Look for the C2G website in the “Subscribed” section of the reader, and you’ll be able to read the latest posts.
