MATTERS FOR DISCUSSION AND ACTION  

10. Submission to Consultation on Discrimination Law Review

Mr. Chua Hoi Wai, Chief Executive, presented to Members a revised draft submission which has incorporated views collected from different meetings and consultation sessions with agency members and members of other governance committees. Mr. Chua highlighted that the submission has expressed a general reservation to the design and arrangement of the public consultation conducted by Equal Opportunities Commission, which hindered a constructive and effective deliberation among different stakeholders. There were other issues, like consolidation of four Discrimination Ordinances into one, de facto marriage and charities exceptions, where conflicting views lacking of consensus were being explicitly stated. Members noted and basically agreed with contents of the submission, and it was agreed that the Council would further circulate to all agency members for a final round of consultation, followed by initial endorsement of Standing Committee on Policy Research and Advocacy, thereafter a revised draft incorporated with different views to ExCo for final endorsement. With no further views, Mr. Chua thanked Members for the comments and would follow up to work on the submission. 

 

11. Membership Feedback Survey 2014

Mr. Chua Hoi Wai, Chief Executive, introduced to Members the background and objectives of the Membership Feedback Survey (the Survey) which was conducted every three years and for 2014 Survey, it has started in July and completed in September. Having compiled and analyzed all data and views collected, an initial report of findings were presented to Members of ExCo for preliminary views. Subsequently, a composite report with recommendations consolidated would be submitted to Members of ExCo in December for final endorsement.  Ms. Cheung Lai Wah, Chief Officer (Membership Liaison and Service), responsible with the process in conducting the Survey helped explained the methodology, key elements of the distributed questionnaire and preliminary findings. A view was noted from a Member who suggested the management to consider stepping up efforts in highlighting the work of different services, in order to enhance pubic understanding of the Council. With no further views from Members, Mr. Chua thanked Members for the comments and would work with responsible staff team to follow up on the Survey.    

 

12. Co-option of Members to the Executive Committee

Mr. Chua Hoi Wai, Chief Executive, presented to Members the Management’s recommendation for re-appointment of co-opted members for a term of 2 years from 2014-16. Members noted and suggested that it would be more appropriate and fair to also cross reference participation and engagement of co-opted members in other Council’s advisory / steering committees, other than their attendance at ExCo meetings. With no further views from Members, Mr. Chua would proceed to seek consent from recommended co-opted members in accepting the re-appointment. Mr. Chua would update progress at the next Meeting. 

 

ANY OTHER BUSINESS

13. The Chief Executive proposed to Members for the Council to sign MOU in becoming the Associate/Advisor of the network of Regional Food Banks in Asia (the Network) and Members have enquiries on the reputation risk, financial commitment and liability of the association with the Network. Noting the concerns and comments from Members at the Meeting, the Chairperson recommended that in the interim, a conditional approval was granted by ExCo and the Chief Executive and responsible staff were tasked to further investigate into the operation of the proposed Network until more concrete information could be provided to clear queries raised by Members. 

14. The Chief Executive sought for Members’ views on the request for the Council to participate in joint-signing action of social workers initiated within the sector, in response to occupy movement and police actions towards citizens participated in the movement. Having discussed, it was advised that the Council as an organization would not be appropriate to take part in a joint-signature action for individuals, whereas the Council could consider further deliberation in issuing a balanced statement urging for an open dialogue between the government and participants of the mass rally for the goodwill of all citizens in the community. The Chief Executive noted and would follow up closely with the development of the incident.  

15. Members noted and approved extension of signing authority of the incumbent Chairperson and Hon. Treasurer to the date of completion of the change in signing authority arising from any change of such office-bearing positions in the new governance term of office in 2014-15. 

16. After finished the ExCo business meeting, the Chairperson updated Members on the latest development of Labour Tribunal Case of a HKCSS Staff in confidential session. Members noted the progress with no further enquiries. 

 

There being no other business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:00 p.m.
