9. How do the RDAs work together?

The Chairs meet about every 6 weeks. Meetings are arranged by the RDA National Secretariat. Each RDA agrees to champion certain aspects of the RDA agenda and is said to have a lead role on that issue. One of the Chairs acts as the 'Chair of Chairs' for a period of 6 months. At their meetings the Chairs discuss key issues that affect all the English Regional Development Agencies and consider ways in which they can advise Government to shape policy to benefit all regions. The Chairs meet regularly with Ministers to report on the work of the RDAs and raise policy issues.
