23 August – Remit Discussion Paper
The RAS wants feedback from member organisations and stakeholders such as competitors and volunteers. The discussion paper explains how we want to better involve everyone in the development of new ideas and initiatives which become remits to be voted on. The discussion paper gives the background to this discussion and explains what it is we are hoping to achieve. At the end of the paper are questions and a link to an online survey to provide us direct feedback. Please let others know about this and feel free to share the facebook post but do not comment on Facebook. All feedback to be through survey – Consultation on Remits V3
