- Hounslow Community Network is governed by an Executive Board with places for both groups and forum/sector reps.
- Half of the group rep places are restricted to small organisations employing the equivalent of up to one full-time staff member (35hrs).
- The Executive Board meets regularly to discuss strategic decisions.
- Group reps on the Executive Board are elected at the annual HCN conference.
Hounslow Community Network is governed by an Executive Board in line with the HCN Constitution.
The Executive Board is made up of 24 places, 12 of which are earmarked for VCS forums and 12 for group (individual) rep places. Of the 12 group rep places, 50% (i.e. 6 places) are awarded to small VCS groups employing the equivalent of up to 1 full-time staff member (35hrs). This ensures that small VCS organisations will have a place on the Executive Board and keep HCN as open as possible to the wider VCS of Hounslow.
Following elections at the 2015 HCN Annual Conference the membership of the Executive Board is as below:
Debbie Brenner (Chair)
Debbie has been active in the Hounslow voluntary and community sector for over 30 years and for 20 years was the CEO of Owl Housing, a large local provider of services for people with learning difficulties.

Henry Gewanter (Vice Chair)
