Accredited marshal scheme, volunteers needed.

See the following message from Joe Wilkes. Please consider volunteering for this.
If you want to know more contact me or Joe Wilkes directly.

Hi All,

I trust you are well,

Just an email to say a big thank you for all of your hard work this season, it has been a huge success and that is all down to you all!! Below are a few highlights to take from the year:

In 2018 we have only had 1 failure to stop across 29 races which is a great ratio compared to other regions
We haven’t had to cancel any events due to the lack of Accredited Marshals which many other regions have had to
We have run with lead marshals at events with no issues, a big thank you to those of you who have stepped up to the role this year
77% of our Accredited Marshals have been active this year which is the best ratio in the country
20 of our marshals have done more than the minimum requirement for number of events
We have helped out races outside of our region 21 times in 2018

As you can see some real positives for us as a team from 2018 and even better considering it was only the 2nd year of running the scheme compared to some regions who are much further down the line than us!

I am planning on running a session ahead of next season to look back at the 2018 season and see if there is anything we can improve on, run a CPD session as a reminder of some areas of the training we may have forgotten and look forward to the 2019 season and beyond. Also a big change for 2019 which we will discuss is that the regional board have now agreed to appoint an Accredited Marshal Coordinator for the region so hopefully they will be in post by then and we can discuss how we will work together going forward. The role for the Accredited Marshal Coordinator will be circulated around you all shortly so if you are interested please keep an eye out for it.

Also for next season we are looking at running the Accredited Marshal Scheme on 100% of road races in the West Midlands which once again means more recruitment of Accredited Marshals across the region. I am planning on running 2 courses on the 16th and 17th February at Stourport Sports club and Wolverhampton Leisure Village if you could spread the word around your clubs, friends and families to see if anyone is interested in joining the team that would be great, if everyone finds 1 person who wants to join the team we will have more than enough marshals for next season! Please get them to contact me if they want to know any more information or wish to train or alternatively point them to the Accredited Marshal section on the website, link is below: ... rshal?c=EN

Once again a big thank you for all of your hard work this year and I will be in touch ahead of our Accredited Marshal meeting early next year!

Many Thanks,

Joe Wilks

Regional Events Officer – West Midlands
