Due to the positive response to planning, the executive have chosen to change the planning approach so as to ensure everyone who wishes to participate can have the opportunity to present ideas and to allow all suggestions to be fully considered. The current time table would have resulted in having to limit discussions, consideration and the planning effectiveness due to time constraints. This limitation was considered to be inappropriate as we wish to appropriately accommodate everyone in the process.
Consequently, the executive will form a Planning Group with several seconded members who will engage in a “Planning Preparation”. We will seek preliminary information in written form so it can be circulated before the planning meetings for wide consideration.
Thank you to everyone for their expression of interest in the planning. We wish to include as many people as possible in the planning process in the most effective way we can.
Further details to folllow regarding the next steps.
From Barry More It is still not entirely clear to me; who will be on the panning group? Who will select who goes on the planning group? It seems to me that you should ask for volunteers, publish their names and ask all fencers to vote for who they want on the group, that way, the fencers will most likely get the plans they want. With the internet it would only take a week or so. Are you asking for submissions before appointing the group? Or will the planning goup be 'seeking preliminary information'? I believe the most effective process would be chose representation from involved groups; Fencers, Parents, Coaches, Referees and administrators. Perhaps only one or two from each group to keep the planning group a managable size. I certainly want to be involved. bjm
