At the AGM in June 2020 we explained that the ODG would continue with a smaller group to September 2020 to complete the work on the following recommendations to the Board:
· Clubs strategy
· Digital strategy
· Specialist committee review
· Article changes
The hard work of the work stream on the restructure of the National Council will now sit under the National Council (NC) and report to them and the Board (as required) as they progress the consultation with Members.
Further, we have disbanded the subsidiary work stream due to complexity of the individual relationships with the various organisations and the Board has taken on that work as it has already initiated conversations in certain areas. This includes a strategy day held with BMC Access and Conservation Trust in June and the potential for similar events with Mountain Heritage Trust, Mountain Training Trust and Land Management Trust which will be based on a short paper from the ODG on areas of focus.
It was also noted that it has been agreed by the Board that the remaining ORG recommendations that are still relevant need to be implemented by the appropriate parties and that this should be monitored by the Board. Thereafter, the final stage of the ODG will begin in January 2021 where it will provide evidence to the membership on the return on investment of money, time and resources.
