Now the caveats – our collective watch list is:
1. The Administrators state they are pleased with member participation but as a member I haven’t experienced any engagement to date with this key and fast-moving process – have you?
2. The Administrator governance model proposes a nomination committee to propose transition directors – why aren’t members being asked to contribute names for consideration? Who is providing them and what are their credentials?
3. What horse sports knowledge and experience is being accessed by whom and from whom to draft new ways forward – I fear the 7 day deadline to 14 July meeting means member consultation and feedback will be in name only.
Nothing will please me more to be proven wrong on every point above and I promise our readers that Equestrian Life will keep you posted with news and updates as the 14 July deadline approaches. We need change with member engagement, not more of the past failed non-consultative actions.
