Surfing GB is a membership driven organisation that was born out of the ashes of the BSA in Jan 2011. Having promised a clean break from historical problems the new committee started with bold intentions but by Sept 2011 it was clear that there were fundamental failings. Up stepped a group of surfers, volunteers, experts and interested parties who ensured by gaining sponsorship, calling in favours and securing the goodwill of a sceptical surfing community, the successful running of the 2011 British National championships.
Following the Nationals a new steering committee was convened and they started to pick up the pieces. To be honest it’s been a close run thing, things have been worse than many would have imagined, but by taking a pragmatic and open approach have managed to smooth a lot of issues.
We’ve been busy steadying the ship for 6 months now, implementing proper procedures, building a new website and integrated online membership system, sending the junior team to Panama, branding, consulting with existing membership and the wider public through surveys….
To be honest there’s been a lot going on that none of you have heard about, but to give some transparency as promised here are the minutes from the last 6 meetings. Have a read and let us know what you think. Want to help out or learn more? contact us email@example.com
