On Saturday 29th January 9am-1.30pm (at the Jubilee Centre) working towards having a full County team planning session to jointly refresh and develop our Skills 4 Life Plan, look at key areas of focus over the coming years and set out our media needs. Clearly this is all dependent upon the Covid position and can be easily moved if things are not looking favourable. We will also be offering the opportunity to zoom in to the sessions.
Breakfast sandwiches will be available from 9am and we will start the session at 9.30. Following the discussions a buffet lunch will be available. To help with catering and seating arrangements Bookwhen will be set up
The discussions will be led by the Deputy CC team, Toby and I. We will remind ourselves of the current Skills 4 Life plan and the structure / boards set up to deliver, before exploring what needs refreshing to meet local needs as we come out of the pandemic, vision of the new UK team and your future aspirations for the County.
We will also talk about the County Conference which will be held at Bradford University on Saturday March 12th. This will be a free event for anyone involved in Scouting leadership and any adults interested in finding out more about what Scouting has to offer. The focus will be on Connecting leaders with yourselves and each other, Inspiring volunteers with new programme ideas, and Growing our volunteer numbers.
Another area of discussion will be the reduction of our carbon footprint and how our carbon usage can be offset. Bradford University is intending to support this work over coming years alongside the development of a wider partnership agreement with WYS.
The planning session should be a great opportunity for everyone to have a say and influence the direction of the County, to ensure we continue to offer amazing, youth shaped and safe experiences, encourage young people to achieve their potential, support our volunteers and offer scouting to all young people and adults across West Yorkshire communities.
More details will follow in the new year but please save the dates.
The Planning day is for all DC’s, County Team, District Youth Commissioners and LTM’s.
If we don’t speak before wishing everyone a great Xmas and all the very best for the new Year
Kind regards Ian
