Meet the Board

 

Dorset LEP is led by a Board of directors that consists of business leaders from different sectors, local authority representatives, and Higher and Further Education sector representatives, and their priority is to make decisions with Dorset’s best interest in mind.

Dorset LEP Board members are not remunerated but can claim reasonable travel expenses if travelling on LEP business.  

You are able to view Dorset LEP’s full Conflict of Interest policy here. You will also be able to view the Register of Board members' interests here.
