On the 12th August 2017 at our AGM we narrowly failed to secure a majority vote from our membership in favour of changing our Articles of Association.
We recognise that we could have offered better support to membership through out the last voting process in the build-up to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in August, and we have reviewed member feedback carefully since.
Our members fed back the need for a clear channel where queries and concerns could be addressed. We have created this website to help answer your questions and give you easy access to all the information you need in order to decide how to vote.
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.
This year the government implemented a new initiative which has been developed and implemented 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.
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.
Please take the time to look around the site and if you cannot attend the EGM in person send in your proxy vote. Remember a spoiled vote is a wasted vote, check out a voting guide before you fill out the form.
