Governance

Good governance is a vital part of how third sector organisations operate and are held accountable.  Having an effective board is key to ensuring Snowsport Scotland can deliver its responsibilities.  This page will give you more information as to who sits on the board along with further information on the structure of the organisation.

sportscotland Position

The following bullet points articulate sportscotland’s position in relation to these governance matters:

  • sportscotland is fully supportive of the need for the Board of Snowsport Scotland to revise the organisation’s Articles of Association. The sportscotland SGB Governance Framework, which is based upon the Nolan principles of good governance, outlines best practice for Board composition.  This includes a mix of appointed and elected Directors, as this provides a good balance between Directors with knowledge and experience of the sport and Directors with specific skill sets and an independent view.
  • sportscotland is committed to access for all and would encourage any SGB to offer a wide range of membership choices. This will provide opportunities for everyone with an interest in a sport to become involved and have a say in shaping its future.
  • One of the key priority areas within sportscotland’s 2015-19 Corporate Plan is collaboration and impact. We would encourage SGBs to establish a mechanism where by all key partners and potential partners can work together to develop the sport at national and regional level. sportscotland sees the SSS proposal to establish national and regional forums and an effective committee structure as a replacement for the SSS Council as a positive step forward, which will offer a vehicle for a wider range of parties, such as commercial providers and local authorities, to contribute and work together to develop snowsports in Scotland.

 

Next Steps

The SSS Board will soon be considering a final proposal for a new membership structure and once this has been approved, the Board will call a General Meeting, providing the necessary notice and detail.
