sorry, I could have been a bit clearer. Who handles the instructor/coaching stuff. There is a difference between recreation and instructor/coaching.
In theory, a recreational representative could be elected to the position and have no knowledge/interest in the coaching/instructor aspect to the sport, so this would leave the TDU unrepresented, and possibly leave the instructors & coaches without a voice in the new look NGB.
While I'm not certain what I think of the new structure, I acknowledge that change was needed and am willing to give it my support and see how it works.
If the new structure doesn't work effectively, the membership have shown that the structure can change and so we can change it again if desired.
