One Sailing Update
This note is to provide clubs with an update on the One Sailing project.
Following the completion of Phase 3, the Yachting NSW Board has signed the One Sailing Implementation Agreement, making it the first state to migrate to the new integrated organisational model.
As a result of this, all YNSW staff have now transitioned employment to Yachting Australia. To capitalise on some immediate efficiencies, staff have moved from the YNSW office to the YA office in St. Leonards.
As part of the staffing restructure, YNSW General Manager David Edwards is taking on a new national role as General Manager of Club Services and Operations, reporting to CEO Matt Carroll. David’s role will be responsible for Training & Education, Online Services and the network of Regional Managers and Club Services Officers across the country.
Yachting Australia has begun recruiting for a Regional Manager (responsible for NSW & ACT); and once this position is filled will commence hiring for additional Club Services Officers. The organisational structure will continue to evolve and strengthen as the other States come on board.
The development of a new national strategic plan will be taking place over the next few months and we look forward to this capturing the synergies and benefits identified in the earlier phases of the One Sailing project.
While the responsibility for the delivery of services has transferred to Yachting Australia, Yachting NSW Incorporated remains as the organisation of which NSW clubs are members. There are reporting and service delivery obligations in place to ensure that the change process is managed smoothly. The YNSW board are available to discuss issues or concerns that may arise, in addition to those that management will no doubt be able to assist with.
I look forward to providing you with a further update at the annual club conference. Details are to be finalised but will most likely be held in early May and will be communicated to you when confirmed.
