BJA Consultation Meetings – Governance Review

Dear Club Contact

British Judo Association Consultation Meetings – Governance Review

In reference to the Governance Review document that was presented and discussed at the Annual General Meeting on 5 November 2016 and, as mentioned in that meeting, we wanted to confirm that we will now be entering into a period of consultation with all our members.

In order to provide our members with the full detail behind the recommendations, we have produced a series of documents in relation to the governance review that will be sent out in the post shortly to ensure that you receive these before the New Year.

Governance Review Summary (accessible via this link)

Governance Review for the British Judo Association by Jonathan Hall

Summary of proposed amendments to the BJA’s Memorandum and Articles

All 3 documents will be sent in a single pack. If you do not receive them then please do let us know and we will ensure hard copies will be re-sent.

In order to fully discuss the changes as proposed by Jonathan Hall, consultation meetings have been arranged for your area, details of which can be obtained from your Area Chairs/Secretaries. The dates are stated in the Governance Review Summary and can also be viewed on the new governance review

These meetings will give you an opportunity to get a better understanding of the impact of the changes and will allow you to ask any questions that you may have.

The new microsite is designed to keep members fully up-to-date with the review and contains links to download copies of the documents sent in the pack. The new microsite will also contain a blog so we can share the latest updates, details from the meetings etc. while anyone that wants to ask a question about the review process can do so via an online form on the new microsite.

Early in the New Year exact meeting details will be confirmed to your Area Chairs and Secretaries, and these will also be posted on the microsite. We will also email all members these details.

We do hope that you will be able to attend the consultation meeting and look forward to welcoming you.

However, if you do have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your Area Chair or Sharon Hellend at or on 01902 322376.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Scoular

Chief Executive Officer
