To all members and sponsors of Macclesfield rugby club

Over the past few weeks you will have seen various communications about proposals to change the way the rugby club is run. These were the culmination of work by the Management Committee who had recognised that significant changes needed to be made in the way that the club is managed if it is to survive and prosper in the current economic climate. Over the course of the winter, they worked with a team of five individuals to develop a new structure that will run the club in a more business-like way and ensure that it develops in line with the wishes of all of its members. Last week at the AGM, a new Executive Committee comprising these five people was unanimously elected to replace the existing Management Committee.

This short note is intended to introduce the new committee to you, outline our immediate plans and highlight how you can help.

The new Executive Committee; L-R: Tim Peakman, Peter Harper, Jeremy Bostock, Charlie Halle. (Inset – David Mair).

Your new committee

The new Executive Committee will be chaired by Peter Harper with Jeremy Bostock, Charlie Halle, David Mair and Tim Peakman in the supporting roles. Between us, we have approaching 100 years of senior business experience and about the same as members of the rugby club.

We will be supported by an operations team (comprising some of the previous Management Committee supplemented by new members), an Honorary Secretary and an Honorary President. We will be announcing who these individuals are in the next few weeks. The Executive Committee will be responsible for the management of the club and will work closely with the operations team and the honorary positions to implement these decisions.

All of our contact details are listed below and will be available on the website so that you can communicate directly with us on any matter. Alternatively, we are at the rugby club nearly every Saturday and Sunday in the season so just come and talk to us.

Our immediate tasks

We have two important sets of tasks: the first is to maintain and enhance the day-to-day operations of the club as we transition from the previous committee to the new structure and the outgoing committee are working hard to make sure this is a smooth handover. In parallel, we are going to start the process of developing a long-term strategic plan that will identify where the membership wants to take the club in the next five years and how we are going to get there. To do this, we will consult with you throughout the process and publish the various recommendations for feedback before any firm decisions are made.

How you can help

The next few years are going to be challenging for the club and, to be successful, we will need to draw on all the help and expertise available amongst our members. If you feel you are able to contribute in any way (either in a formal position or on an ad hoc basis) please let us know. You don’t have to have been a member for 25 years or an ex-first team player to become involved. Additionally, we will be consulting with all members and sponsors about what they want from their rugby club and how they would like to see it develop. Please engage with these initiatives so that we can frame our planning in the knowledge that it represents the wishes of the majority of our members. Finally, if you have any ideas, suggestions or concerns about of any aspect the way the club is run or can be run, please let us know. This applies equally to a member of the first team squad as it does to a parent of a player in the under 6 team.

Our main route of communication with members will be through the website where we will publish minutes of all Executive Committee meetings and other relevant matters.

We look forward to your support
