AGM

The Scottish Gymnastics board of directors gives notice that the 2020 annual general meeting will take place on Sunday 20 September at 1pm. This will be held “virtually” using Zoom’s video conference platform. 

The resolutions include one that relates to a proposed update to the technical panel regulations, now known as technical committee regulations. The purpose of the technical committees is to maintain the integrity of the sport and use each committee’s technical expertise to support the planning and development of safe, quality gymnastics programmes in Scotland. Specific focus will be given to the performance pathway, coach and judge development and the Scottish national events programme. This will be done by working in conjunction and cooperation with Scottish Gymnastics board and staff.

There are seven technical committees: acrobatic, men’s, rhythmic, TeamGym, trampoline & double-mini trampoline, tumbling, and women’s. The regulations have been drafted to reflect the proposed changes following a review of the current structure and regulations, with input from existing panel members, staff and board members.

The key changes are:
•  Additional technical committee following the addition of the tumbling technical committee
•  Reduction in committee roles from six to four with each technical committee consisting of four members:
   •  Chairperson
   •  Competition coordinator
   •  Judging coordinator
   •  Pathway coordinator
•  All roles will be advertised and open to all members to apply
•  Technical committee will meet a minimum of four times per year and can include virtual meetings. Scottish Gymnastics staff representatives for each discipline will also attend each committee meeting.
•  Addition of a new joint technical committee which will meet a minimum of twice a year to ensure the activities of Scottish Gymnastics and all the disciplines are coordinated and to act as a forum for discussion on all technical committee matters.
