-By its very nature, the work of the Executive is varied and, therefore, dealt with by the appropriate means at the time. This includes: face-to-face meetings; phone calls; e-mail; and probably in the future web conferencing.+By its very nature, the work of the Executive is varied and, therefore, dealt with by the appropriate means at the time.

 +When decisions or advice involve the work of a Standing Committee or Working Party, Executive will normally consult as many specialists (usually members of the appropriate Standing Committee or Working Party) as possible, given the required timescale for decision making. The final decision will then normally be made following the advice of the Standing Committee Convenor. It is extremely unlikely that a decision involving a Standing Committee would ever need to be taken by the Executive only.

-In the event of one of more Members of the Executive being away and out of contact, the remaining Member, or Members, should aim to deal only with the most urgent, or non-controversial business. Should something urgent arise, then no one member ​single of Executive should deal with it on their own. Instead they should liaise with at least two other appropriate Council Members first, and make their decision on the basis of this. It is generally ​recommended that the Executive Member in question keep note of these discussions.+In the event of one of more Members of the Executive being away and out of contact, the remaining Member, or Members, should aim to deal only with the most urgent, or non-controversial business.
