On Sunday the 11th of June, we held our third and final National Ice Skating Association Information Day in London.
The Information Days were designed to give members full understanding of changes to the Articles of Association, and what they mean for everyone in the sport.
Attending the day on behalf of NISA were CEO Jackie Sheldon, Governance Director Maggie Worsfold, Lead Safeguarding Officer Michelle Draper, Governance Consultant Simon Le Fevre, High Performance Programme Manager Robin Cousins and Finance Director Chris Buchanan.
They were joined by 26 attendees, made up of members, coaches, judging officials and parents, all keen to learn more ahead of the important 2017 Annual General Meeting in August.
Those present were taken through the proposed changes to the current Articles of Association and how they affect the future of ice skating in the UK.
The Governance group talked in detail about the AGM and the importance of voting, ensuring attendees left with a thorough understanding of the changes and the importance of putting them into play.
At all three Information Days, questions were addressed in detail and an FAQ section will soon be added to the AGM landing page to help address common queries.
Governance Director Maggie said: “All three Information Days have been very positive, and the feedback tells us they were a worthwhile and informative experience for those who attended.
“It’s really important that our members understand what is going on right now and it’s great to know people are backing the future of ice skating in the UK.
“NISA is working through a time of massive change, and we want to make sure members have the full picture about why and what these changes mean.
The AGM in August will be incredibly important for the National Ice Skating Association, and it’s every single member’s chance to have their say and help shape our future.
“We need to make sure people know that they have a right to vote and why it’s important – that’s what the Information Days were all about.”
This year the AGM will be taking place at the Jury's Inn, Nottingham. It will commence at 12 noon, and we recommend attendees arrive by 11:30am.
You don't need to register your attendance, simply arrive on the day. If you are unable to attend, please ensure you have filled out a proxy form to cast your vote.
