ARCom meeting scheduled for August 3 & 4
- 25th July 2007, 9:10am
Unlike previous meetings which focussed on six months worth of agenda items, this meeting is dedicated to forward planning.
The meeting has a theme of "Removing Barriers to Participation in Australian Rallying."
During the meeting, a number of organisers from a wide variety of events (excluding ARC and international gravel rallies which already have strong access to ARCom) are attending the meeting to report to the Commission on exactly what makes their events successful and the barriers they face.
Similarly, the individual portfolio holders on ARCom will be presenting the key issues in their areas.
“I have asked your state rally panels to canvass anything you, as competitors, officials, organisers (or any other role) would like to bring to the attention of the Commission for this meeting,” ARCom Chairman, Ed Ordynski said.
“I have a teleconference with the state rally panel chairs on July 31 when I hope we can collate the information gathered, which will be included in my report to ARCom.
“Putting any feedback on the forums or email to your representatives is fine – just taking the opportunity to be involved would be appreciated,” Ordynski added.
By the end of the two-day conference ARCom hopes to have identified and prioritised the key issues; viewed them in light of the current (i.e. 'Old ARCom') strategic/business plan and Terms-of-Reference (to see what needs to be addressed there for them to move forward); identified budgetary requirements; and most importantly, started fixing the most urgent items.
“I hope the outcome of this meeting will make a genuine difference to our sport,” Ordynski said.
