President pushes for implementation of reform recommendations

TWO NEW groups recommended by the Presidential Commission on Future Framework were approved at the recent Council meeting to bolster a process which is 'not going quickly enough'.

'We are not getting through the implementation of recommendations quickly enough,' said the President Sir Alan Cockshaw. 'I want to have a meeting with all the groups to give them a kick up the back side. We have to push reforms along. There is a feeling among local associations that they are not seeing much come through,' he said.

A new Strategy & Planning Committee will be formed, responsible to Council. A Planning & Development Group will in turn report to the SPC, keeping an overview on the process and suggest changes.

The SPC is to be chaired by the succeeding vice president Roger Sainsbury, and will include three members of Council.

Said Cockshaw: 'I strongly support that there should be an plan for three Council members to serve. If more than three people come forward we'll have an election within Council.'

The PDG will include eight local association representatives and will also have three representatives on SPC.
