The Central Council Review Action Group (CRAG) has published its report today ahead of the forthcoming Central Council meeting. Whilst, at first glance, this might not seem that relevant to us, the report contains a number of recommendations which may change the way that ringing is organised, how it is viewed externally and how it is promoted. The report has possible implications for us as an Association and how we might interact with a direct member organisation.
Association Members are encouraged to read the Report (Summary and Full Report available on CRAG website) and provide feedback to our two Central Council representatives, Pip Penney and Sam Bolingbroke. They, along with the other Reps, will have to vote on the proposals at the CC Meeting on 29th May so guidance on the views of members is important. It is the Association's view that CRAG has done a great deal of work in a short period of time. The proposals are impressive and the members of CRAG (including Peter Bennett) should be congratulated. Ringing needs to adapt and move forward if it is to survive and this is an important step in that process.
