Development and Outreach Team (DOT) Aims and Responsibilities

Post by richard » Wed Sep 07, 2016 8:30 pm

The Development and Outreach Team (DOT)

This is our proposal to replace the now-defunct development committee.
Aims & Structure:
The aims of the DOT will be to:
Help the BDGA achieve its constitutionally-stated objectives to “promote awareness and
acceptance of Disc Golf as a sport; And to encourage the growth of Disc Golf as a sport in the
British Isles.”
It will hope to achieve this via:
Working with existing DG businesses in the UK
Using the collective expertise of the BDGA membership along with funds generated through
membership fees, giving it an annual minimum allocated budget
The DOT will be headed by a Development Officer (DO), a non-executive officer of the BDGA, to
be appointed via application to the BDGA Board. The DO will serve a two-year term, subject to
review by the BDGA Board.
The appointed DO will then work with the BDGA Board to select their Team of up to 5 additional
BDGA members, serving initially for one-year terms. To prevent conflicts of interest, none of these
positions may be filled by individuals with commercial interests (DG businesses).
The DOT will be given an annual budget of £1000 from the BDGA’s development fund, subject to
review. They will be free to spend this as they see fit, although any single expenditure above £400
will require BDGA Board approval.
The DOT will report back to the BDGA membership at least once yearly (at the AGM), if not more
DO Job Description includes but is not limited to:
To drive grassroots disc golf development within Great Britain
Act as first point of contact for inquiries about grassroots DG development.
Work with commercial partners to best fulfill these inquiries.
To chair the committee and ensure that the DOT budget is spent as effectively as possible
To produce a questionnaire to ensure that the service provided to enquirers by the DOT was of an
acceptable level
To meet with the Board at least once per year to review the spending and activity of the DOT
To consult with the Board regarding appointments to the DOT. The DO will be able to make
recommendations as well as aid in choosing a DOT from applications received.
Personal Specification:
Passion, drive and determination in developing grass roots Disc Golf within Great Britain.
Commercial awareness/budget management experience
Ability to deal with tact and diplomacy
High levels of integrity and able to deal transparently with multiple parties.
