These are the minutes for the eighth CoST Board Meeting, in August 2013.
The Interim Board discussed the programme updates, the financial report, the draft business plan, applications from new countries, funding issues (such as contingency arrangments for funding shortfalls) and the priorities for the next six months. These were outlines as fundraising, increasing new membership and strengthening existing national programmes. New countries that are able to bring resources will not impose an undue burden on existing resources.
The new countries submitting applications were Uganda, Ukraine and Afghanistan.
