In November, we invited Club members to take part in a series of discussion groups hosted by Tricia Paterson in which they were asked to talk about the things they liked about the Club and the things they wanted to see changed or introduced. This was excellent timing as we move into the third phase of our Business Plan: “Change and Growth”.
A total of 48 members participated in the ’Take Stock’ exercise either in person or by sending their written comments.
Tricia has summarised member feedback in a PowerPoint presentation, which you can find on our Club website: www.sheenltsc.co.uk after logging in to the members' area and scrolling down to 'member secure area'. The document is entitled SLTSC Members Debrief.
Focus groups are a useful way of exploring the opinions and ideas of a diverse community. The members who participated were a self-selected group so may not be representative of the membership as a whole, but Tricia worked hard to get views from all sections of the Club. The report contains verbatim comments from individual members and these personal views should not be seen as official Club opinion.
The Managing Committee (MC) will now agree the actions that can be implemented immediately and the best way to achieve the structural changes that need to be approved by the members at a General Meeting.
The MC is very grateful to Tricia for her work and to all the members who gave up their time to share their views.
If you have any comments about the results of this project, please do get in touch.
