A decision has been taken to restructure a number of the paid positions within the CA. This has been brought about by a number of factors not least the necessity for our association to make better use of modern technology. This, together with the fact that a number of people will be retiring from posts during the next two years, has stimulated a fundamental review of procedures. This review was completed and presented to council in October.
The recommendations of the report were agreed in principle. During this winter we will implement phase one which will be the appointment of a Croquet Association Manager and an Honorary Secretary. These two posts are advertised in the December Gazette and on the website. I would urge anyone who feels suitably qualified to apply for the posts.
We are looking to fill these posts during the spring of 2008. Once this has been achieved the next tasks will be to consider how we integrate the CA shop, the publication of the Fixtures Calendar and modernisation of our administration procedures in the CA office.
