As we launch the 2023-27 Domestic Events Strategy to guide us over the next four years, Scottish Cycling are pleased to also announce a refreshed governance structure to support us in its implementation.
This structure has been shaped by the feedback we received from the Scottish Cycling community through the Domestic Events Strategic Review and Discipline Working Group Review, the full report of which is available here, and will provide an effective and engaging commission structure which will enable our community to shape our sport.
We believe the following Events commission structure will enable Scottish Cycling to be agile and work more dynamically as the sport changes and develops at an ever-increasing rate. Commissions are advisory groups that bring together members of the community with a range of perspectives to support Scottish Cycling in decision making, to help grow and progress the sport.
A simultaneous review of the Regional Development Groups (RDG’s) has been taking place, led by the Club Development team. The extensive consultations concluded that the RDG’s and Event Commissions are intrinsically linked through their focus on events and recommended that the two become more aligned. A revised regional development structure will be introduced in 2023 forming a second phase of this governance review across Scottish Cycling to ensure this alignment.
The Events commission structure will comprise of three groups, all with the aim of supporting the implementation of the domestic events strategy and ensuring everyone has the opportunity to experience the thrill of events and achieve their best.
The Commissaire Commission will advise on volunteer workforce development, ensuring that we have great people to make our sport happen. The Technical Commission will advise on the technical regulations of the sport, ensuring our sport is safe, fair and progressive. Finally, the Sport Commission will advise on the development of all aspects of the sport and the delivery of the 2023-27 Domestic Events Strategy.
We are looking for individuals from across the Scottish Cycling community, from as broad a range of disciplines, backgrounds, genders, ages, abilities, and ethnicities as possible, who would like the opportunity to help us shape the future of cycle sport in Scotland. It is important that the complete diverse range of perspectives with an interest in the sport are represented within these groups.
