Update on progress post-SGM

As we approach the festive season and the end of the year, we want to take a moment to extend warm wishes to each and every one of our members. We hope you have a peaceful holiday season and a Happy New Year.

We are pleased to update you on our discussion with England Athletics following the recommendations of the SGM Independent Panel Report. A big thank you to all those of you who came forward to support the working groups; it has been great to see everyone working together to help improve our club!

  • Communication: Our Membership Survey Working Group has drafted and will launch a club wide survey in the new year, which will seek your views on how the club communicates with our members.

  • AGM: Building on the SGM and your positive feedback, we plan to hold our AGM in a hybrid format enabling both in-person and online attendance, with online voting in advance. The committee continues to seek an independent party to support our AGM process and any volunteers are warmly invited to step forward.

  • Volunteer Training: We have simplified the process for members to gain coaching qualifications and are working to improve the club welcome experience and to update our volunteer recruitment process.

  • Constitution: A constitution based upon an England Athletics template, prepared by Muckle PLC (law firm) is under review. We plan to complete a draft  for  an SGM in February, aiming to have it in place for the 2024 AGM. Any volunteers are warmly invited to step forward to support this activity.

To everyone who is assisting with this process, and to all our members, thank you for the positive spirit you bring to Bristol & West AC. We look forward to sharing more in 2024.

Happy Holidays!

The Bristol & West AC Committee
