CAMS ORGANISATIONAL BLUEPRINT TO BE RELEASED

Following an extensive organisational review conducted by Ernst & Young, the CAMS Board have developed its blueprint for the future, having regard for the Ernst & Young findings. This blueprint is about to be communicated widely with the President and CEO of CAMS undertaking a series of road shows across Australia in the next few weeks.

The outcomes of the Boards position have been subject to consultation with key leaders from across the organisation, including a full day workshop of State Council and National Commission Chairs and the Board held late last month.

The Boards blueprint is clearly about laying the foundation for the future of the organisation and the achievement of its new strategic direction and the feedback from those that have already had the opportunity to see the proposal is that it makes a lot of sense, is nothing that wasn't expected from such a review and it is obvious the Board have put a lot of thought into it.

A heavy and increased emphasis has been placed on sport & club development, opening up communication lines, removing bureaucracy, streamlining decision making, engaging stakeholders, providing enhanced customer service/access to service delivery, recognising the grass-roots level of the sport, volunteerism and establishing a contemporary governance structure.

The Board recognise the implementation of the outcomes will mean significant change and won't be easy, but with a concerted and unified effort by all members of CAMS they believe the change is achievable and will position the organisation and sport well for the future.

The Board also recognise the need to gain the support of the membership on certain aspects of the review and the road shows are the first step in the consultation process. It also recognises its leadership role in this process and the need for it to make tough decisions in the best interest of the organisation and it is unified in its support for the proposals about to be put forward as a consequence of this review.

As in any review there is always an operational imperative to move quickly to fill key positions to maintain service delivery to our clubs, members and key stakeholders and the Board are insistent these should be aligned to the new organisation. The CEO has been empowered to progress this issue.

The details of the road shows follow and all interested members are encouraged to attend:

31 March - South Australia
1 April - Western Australia
2 April - Tasmania
3 April - Victoria
4 April - New South Wales
8 April - Queensland

Specific details regarding times and venue will be available and circulated by State Offices.
