We are delighted to announce that we’re in the final stages of forming our new board of directors at British Dodgeball with interviews concluding this week. We are excited to announce our new board members later this month. Our new Independent Non-Executive Directors bring skills and experience in safeguarding, risk management, commercial, legal, media and events to the board.
As members of British Dodgeball there are still opportunities for you to become a part of our exciting new board of directors with the below positions available:
Participant Representative – England
Participant Representative – Scotland
Participant Representative – Wales
Participant Representative – Northern Ireland
British Dodgeball recognises that an inclusive voice is needed from participants in the running of the sport; our board of directors has had a strong player influence at the heart of the organisation since our inception in 2017, and the makeup of our technical committee (formerly rules and regulations committee) has always involved members from the dodgeball community. As we look now to develop a board with a greater wealth of experience and expertise that has come from knowledge outside of dodgeball, we want to be able to continue to have a strong player voice within the board when it comes to decision-making.
British Dodgeball is seeking enthusiastic and forward thinking individuals to represent the players’ voice in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We are looking for representatives with strong critical thinking skills who are capable of applying independent judgment to work effectively with other directors.
The role of Participant Representative is a voluntary role with all reasonable travel and subsistence expenses fully reimbursed.
