March update from ACTBA Committee

The New Year has commenced with a flurry of activity and the Committee has already met twice on 3 February and again 3 March 2019 and discussed a number of initiatives for implementation. However, like all good ideas we need your feedback (through your Badminton Club in the first instance) to ensure we manage the expectations of all stakeholders. To do this we are undertaking a survey in March to understand the needs of our members and how ACTBA can support our affiliated clubs appropriately.

The Committee has made a number of administrative decisions to transition fully to the new committee and how it operates. We are reviewing and developing a new business plan that will underpin how ACTBA will enhance the participation and promotion of badminton in the ACT.
