England Athletics is pleased to announce details of our Spring 2013 Consultation Events.
We would encourage as many clubs as possible to send representatives to these events. Whether you believe your views, experiences or ideas are likely to be very similar or very different to those of other clubs we want to hear what they are. We want to hear what you have to say so please get involved and make your voice heard.
Following on from what was raised at the events we held in 2012 and the online submissions we received we want to focus these consultations on two subjects:
· Affiliation – including pricing and processes
· Governance – including how we work to ensure democratic processes for England Athletics work effectively
While these two areas are the focus for the series of events we will also be looking to identify other subjects that club’s believe should form part of our focus for future consultation.
These events will be very important for us as we seek to gain insights and ideas from clubs, as well as having the opportunity to hear the views of clubs on the important issues that we will be discussing together. They will help us to shape our policies and approaches as we move forwards.
