Garry Wilson (NWFCC Chairman) recently attended a CA Conference on the future relationship between the CA and the Federations – here are his comments:
As you may be aware, I recently attended a Federations Conference with David Walters and John Dawson. Though it was a relatively short day, we managed to discover that as a Federation we are well organised and have a great deal of good processes and practices in place.
One outcome of the conference was the creation of a number of working parties and we have committed, if at all possible, to provide two individuals to be members of two of these working parties. The first working party is Communications, and we would be present as a Federation who seem to have got it right. The second working party is one entitled Marketing and Recruitment, which would cover recruitment, retention, sponsorship, etc. We would join this working party like every other Federation, believing we could do better.
We need to look within our Federation for these two participants. They do not need to be committee members. What is more important is expertise in the particular area. All ideas, names and even volunteers would be most welcome, please contact me.
