Chartered Sports Institute votes for new business plan
8th November 2013
A record number of CIMSPA members voted to adopt its future business plan at its first Annual General Meeting on Thursday 7th November, at the Trades Union Congress, London. The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sports & Physical Activity has had a troubled time since receiving its royal charter in late 2011, with insufficient members joining, but the AGM voted overwhelmingly 185 to 7 to move forward with a clear direction and future and revised governance.
Sport England and a number of major sector employers have agreed to support the organisation in its transitional period, but it is hoped that the membership will increase tenfold over the next five years, making it self-sustaining.
The new plan was the result of a 3-month review led by Trustee, David Stalker and his team at UKActive and was well-supported by interim Chair, Marc Newey, who volunteered to step back into the role he had previously occupied to help turn the institute around.
