VOLUNTEER OFFICIALS ADVISORY PANEL
Following lobbying by representative groups, notably the British Motorsport Marshals Club, the Council agreed to debate the matter at some length, after which Council members concluded that marshals should indeed be more represented in the decision-making and legislative process.
The existing Training Steering Group, which was already predominantly concerned with representing marshals` interests as well as those of other volunteers and officials, was renamed the Volunteer Officials Advisory Panel to reflect more accurately its wider remit. The chairmanship will be undertaken by a member of the Panel (rather than an MSA executive), and this chairman take up a seat on the Motor Sports Council to speak on behalf of volunteer officials.
In recognising the immense importance of the 10,000+ marshals to the sport, it was also agreed that a specific Marshals Working Group should be set up, reporting to the revised Volunteer Officials Advisory Panel, thus replicating the structure already in place for timekeepers, scrutineers and other volunteer officials.
