Outline Terms of Reference for the Technical Advisory Committees

As part of the corporate governance and operational management upgrade agreed with UK Sport, the NISA Board of Directors undertook to move away from the structure of Portfolio Directors and Portfolio Sub Groups.

Outline Terms of Reference for the Technical Advisory Committees

It was agreed to put in place an enhanced professional staff structure to manage the full range of NISA’s activities, and an appropriate set of technical advisory committees which will collaborate with the staff and report to the Board. Article 8 therefore provides for:

  • technical advisory committees to be established, covering each discipline in the sport of ice skating;
  • all technical advisory committee members to be elected or appointed, as the case may be, on the basis of their skills and experience;
  • a majority of members on each technical advisory committee to be elected by the NISA Voting Members;
  • all technical advisory committee members to be limited (in compliance with good practice under the Code for Sports Governance) to a maximum of 2 x 4 years terms of office.

Taking account of feedback from the NISA Membership and the EGM Focus Group, the Membership Engagement Committee has been included on the list as a key conduit between the NISA Membership and the NISA Board for consultations on matters which affect NISA’s Membership.
