In March 1993, SACRE representatives met to set up and formally constitute a National Association of SACREs. This followed the implementation of the Education Reform Act [ERA 1988] and the statutory powers and responsibilities now entrusted to the local SACREs.
The new National Association (NASACRE) was launched in 1993 in the House of Lords in the presence of religious leaders and the then Minister of State for Education, Baroness Blatch.
For the launch, the National Association published its aims and has subsequently developed a mission statement. These continue to provide the focus for NASACRE’s programmes and activities.
Honorary officers – Chair, Deputy Chair, Secretary, Treasurer – elected at the AGM for a 2 year term
8 Executive members – nominated by SACREs and elected at the AGM for a 3 year term
Up to 3 co-opted members.
Your Executive meets once or twice a term, usually in London. Previous Minutes may be viewed here.
The National Association is a non-profit making organisation which is financed by affiliation fees from SACREs and subscriptions to public meetings. It aims to raise sufficient monies to pay for speakers and meeting places and to meet its own, internal, running costs.
