Call for nominations to the

Adventure Activities Industry Advisory Committee

The AAIAC, which is supported by both Sport and Recreation Alliance and
SkillsActive, is representative of a wide range of stakeholders from the UK adventure activities sector. It works with the industry to identify, develop and disseminate good practice, and to advise Governments and agencies accordingly.

The Committee consists of individuals with expertise, knowledge and experience of the adventure activities sector. AAIAC members are also understood as coming from broadly defined ‘constituencies’ with which they are expected to keep in touch, and of whose concerns and interests they are expected to be aware.

In accordance with the constitution, nominations are now invited for membership of the Committee (members are normally appointed for a period of three years: one third of the members stand down each year – and may, if eligible, be re-nominated).

Nominees should have a knowledge and understanding of safety and good practice in adventure activities, whilst having a commitment to the AAIAC and its objectives. Committee members will need to be able to read, understand and comment on documentation including relevant consultations, legislation and good practice guidance. Members will be encouraged to participate in the AAIAC working groups and contribute to the development of good practice guidance. Nominees should be able to participate constructively in open discussions, while respecting the views and roles of members and observers.

An information pack and nomination form can be obtained from:
Martin Key, AAIAC Secretariat
By email: mkey@sportandrecreation.org.uk
By post: Sport and Recreation Alliance, Burwood House, 14-16 Caxton Street,
London, SW1H 0QT

All nominations must be with the Secretariat by 5.00 p.m. on Monday 14 March 2011.

The AAIAC Appointments Committee will meet mid-March, following which
successful nominees will be notified.

AAIAC is keen to increase the diversity of its members and welcomes nominations from all sections of the community. Copies of this advert and the application pack are available in large print.
