This year the government implemented a new initiative which has been developed by UK Sport and Sport England; a new code for Sports Governance. It is mandatory for all winter sports to comply with the code by December 31st 2017.
We have made our Articles of Association (the set of rules which govern how we run), compliant with the new code, which has been designed to ‘further nurture the growing culture of good governance already seen’ in sport as a whole.
Now is a crucial time for ice skating in the UK, with big changes proposed to strengthen our association, improve opportunities to grow the sport and offer more to members.
Changes to the articles can only be passed by members through a democratic voting process, and we have now called an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to be held at the British Figure Skating Championships 2nd December at 7:15pm, where the new Articles will be presented again.
