DVO Event Officials’ Development Session (CANCELLED)

Tuesday 24th March, 19.00 – 21.30, Family Tree, Whatstandwell

In September 2015 we held a Development Session, primarily for Planners and Controllers. From this I developed a number of reminders for Event Officials, which were subsequently published in Newstrack (November 2015).

We now feel it’s time to hold another session and this time, as well as Planners and Controllers, to involve Organisers, Mappers and anyone else who has an interest in improving the quality of our events and experiences of the competitors.

Participants are encouraged to bring along a particularly good leg from recent events and issues they have encountered from their own planning, controlling, mapping and organising. This includes aspects related to completing the Risk Assessment and taking mitigating actions.

Mike Godfree will also do a short session on PurplePen as everyone needs to use it in one way or another.

If you would like to attend, please let me know by Tuesday 17th March. Similarly, if you have ideas for topics we should address, let me know by the same date.

Ranald Macdonald, Grade A Controller and DVO Event Safety Officer ()
